After Life: The Science of Decomposition
Imagine an average family kitchen. The fridge and cupboards are well stocked. There are flowers on the side. There's even a dead mouse in a cupboard and flies gathering above the fruit bowl. Over a period of three months, this film reveals the incredible science of taphonomy, following what happens to the organic matter in this kitchen as it starts to decompose. Beautifully shot, After Life is a journey through the heart of decay - from the towering branches of Aspergillus mould that sprouts from the surface of an orange to the spread of slime mould across a loaf of bread.
