Simon Pummell's unique documentary Bodysong uses a collage of images to present a portrait of life from the moment the sperm pierces the egg until death. Home movies, famous film images, and other sources have been tapped to supply the materials. The film attempts to embrace the entire spectrum of human existence by including pictures of disease, violence, and decay. The film includes a soundtrack recorded by Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead.
