In the Company of Insects
In the Company of Insects is a short film by Duncan Cowles with original music composed by Richard Luke completed in January 2020.
Prompted by the death of his grandfather, a filmmaker comes to terms with his feelings of loss by focussing on something smaller.
You are invited to join a deadpan meditation on the end of life, in the company of insects.
