With Insecticon, the filmmakers Ulf Püschel & Luis Burghardt document the impressive insect world. With their camera, they find valuable treasures even in inconspicuous places like roadsides or clearings. Their motto:
„We want to show the small things, the inconspicuous things that often go unnoticed in our hectic world.“
They present their six-legged protagonists with the knowledge of entomology, but not with the eyes of science: „You only experience the uniqueness of each insect if you take its perspective. In the Hour of Insects, they talk about their combined 30 years of experience in observing nature and provide useful tips for explorers big and small.
