A simple yet artistic look at how one man, changed the entire world's perspective on Earth and its inhabitants. Invisible to the naked eye, bacteria and microbes dominate our environment whether we perceive it or not. What should be impossible to human eyes was discovered to be an entirely different spectacle once 17th-century citizen scientist Antonie van Leeuwenhoek invented lenses to magnify these strange biological creatures. Produced by Flora Lichtman and Sharon Shattuck of the New York Times, this animated doc is a creative take on how his discovery changed our view of the biological world.
