Hans explores the microcosm of water droplets

Hans Berggren started his career as a limnologist, but eventually switched to filming more and more. For a few years he worked for Mitt i Naturen, but he has also made an entire documentary film about life in his garden. Over the years, Hans has specialized more and more in the small things in nature. That is, what cannot be seen with the naked eye, but which can only be detected under a microscope. By succeeding in filming what is in a drop of water, Hans can give us an insight into a universe filled with more life than we have previously been able to imagine.
