The Secret World of Moths – the first Finnish planetarium movie for the whole family

Started 18.05.2015

Ended 05.07.2015

The Secret World of Moths is an upbeat adventure traversing from the equator to the polar circle on moths’ wings. The movie’s world is comprised of butterflies and other insects, but it eventually unfolds to address the fundamental questions of life. The themes of the continuous cycle of life, death and reproduction take us to contemplate the carrying capacity of our planet and the role of humans and various animal species in our all-encompassing ecosystem. The movie makes use of 3D x-ray tomography to investigate the world of insects at the microscopic level. As a screening venue, the planetarium provides a setting for conveying a visual nature experience in a uniquely impressive manner.

The Secret World of Moths is an upbeat adventure into the world of butterflies and inner structures of the insect world. It gives us a unique glimpse of the macroscopic world around us that normally remains virtually unnoticeable.

The movie traverses from the equator to the polar circle with different butterfly species. The two extreme life environments help us to comprehend the life’s diversity, fragility and capacity for renewal.

The movie makes use of 3D x-ray tomography to investigate the world of insects at the microscopic level.

Additionally, parts of the movie are filmed in Uganda, the Finnish Lake District, and in Finnish Lapland. The movie combines strong cinematic expression with science-based approach to nature. The movie is intended for the general public and is suitable for the whole family. The planetarium format poses special challenges for production, yet on the other hand, the hemispherical-shaped canvas arching over the entire auditorium offers unprecedented opportunities to make an exquisite movie with attractive visual expression. The movie’s world is comprised of butterflies and other insects, but it eventually unfolds to address the fundamental questions of life.

The themes of the continuous cycle of life, death and reproduction take us to contemplate the carrying capacity of our planet and the role of humans and various animal species in a single all-encompassing ecosystem, the planet Earth. 

The movie is made using our proprietary 3D motor that makes tomography technology accessible to the general public. Data for the movie is generated in collaboration with research scientists from different disciplines from various parts of Europe. The movie explores our arctic environment in an entirely new way.

In 2013, the most popular movies screened in Heureka’s planetarium attracted 50,000–60,000 spectators. The movies also have a life cycle longer than that of a conventional theatre distribution, as they may stay in the repertoire for several years. There is also considerable potential for attracting an international audience. Science centres and planetariums around the world are constantly lacking high-quality content. 

We aim to attract 50,000 spectators in Finland during the first year of screening, which is an exceptionally high figure for a short film. For the spectators, both adults and children, the movie provides an exceptional perspective to the surrounding nature and life on Earth. Drawing upon a science-based view, this artistically distinctive cinematic work is the first Finnish planetarium movie intended for the general public.
