A Fruitfly in New York

Share this film

Take a flight over NYC, the lab and the history of fruit fly research. The rapport that a scientist may have with his model organism is similar to what a painter may have with his canvas. Through the microscope, the fruit fly appears like a monstrously beautiful insect that has sacrificed itself in the pursuit of science.
