Producer and composer Jeff Mills creates an electronic cine-mix to accompany Richard Fleischer’s 1966 sci-fi epic in an immersive screening of the film.
After an assassination attempt from Soviet spies, a crew of experts is shrunk to microscopic size to enter the body of a world leading scientist and save his life.
Mills’s trademark electronics provide an authentic sci-fi backdrop; space-ship style beeps, the pulsing of a heartbeat and ticking of time combine with surrounding sensory effects - to place you in the scene.
A massive undertaking in special effects and set design at the time, the film aligns the exploration of the human body with the ‘Space Race’ politics of the era – linking space travel with the search to know more about ourselves
