Artificial light inside greenhouse

A film poem searching for and illuminating everyday moments in the life of plants triggered by light and inspired by Daniel Chamovitz’s book, ‘ What a plant knows’.

From dusk to dawn across a city, an allotment, a field and a plant laboratory, questioning what is natural and what is man-made and how far we might go to control nature.
