Origins of Life

Alternate Title(s): Ocean Origins

bigImage ORIGINS OF LIFE invites us to an extraordinary adventure: 4 billion years in the ocean, from the very beginning of life up to this incredible moment when the first vertebrate emerged onto dry land and opened path to the conquest of the continents. With fascinating footage applying micro and macro-cinematography techniques, enhanced by spellbinding music, our "stars" are sea-creatures that are still alive today.

* Premiere was held in Paris (La Geode) on June 26, 2001.
