|aThis film explores the mapping of the human body through the use of computer graphics and animation. The human body is a marvel of engineering. From the muscular and skeletal systems of the hand working in concert to allow us to type, eat, and caress, to the circadian rhythms of the heart and digestive system keeping things moving despite our consciousness being elsewhere, our bodies are far more complex and awe inspiring than any man-made creation. Using the most advanced medical and computer technology--including body scans, ultra powerful microscopes, and molecular surveillance tools--this film hones in on the body's intricately constructed systems and isolates structures that have never been seen before. In astonishing images, each system is dismantled, highlighting the anatomical difference between men and women, and then rebuilt from the molecular level up.
