Did you know that a handful of soil contains more inhabitants than there are people on the planet? More than seven billion, that is. Humans have relied on soil for thousands of years. Plants that produce our oxygen grow in the soil. Our food comes from the soil. Without soil, life as we know it would not exist. But we don’t know this second world beneath our feet. The film ONDER HET MAAIVELD JUNIOR follows a group of children who discover this world step by step. An exciting underground world of moles, larvae, worms, fungi, bacteria, woodlice, spiders, centipedes and much more. Most soil animals are small but do great things for nature. After seeing the film, you will look at your own environment in a totally different way and you will feel like getting to work yourself, ripping tiles out of the garden and giving nature a helping hand.

Mark Verkerk, Netherlands, 2023, 83 min. Dutch spoken, without subtitles.
