Summary

Ten-year-old Eric has a show and tell project due at school and he can’t decide on a topic. His grandfather, who’s helped look after Eric since his father died, offers to help by showing him a treasured painting of insects that Eric’s father loved when he was a boy. On closer examination, the painting has some truly magical powers and Eric quickly finds himself living in the land of insects and seeing the world from their size.

It seems that insects are much like humans when it comes to intruders and the unknown. If Eric is going to find the answers he needs to return to his world and complete his school project on time many challenges lay ahead least of which involves not getting stood on.

Combining live-action with computer animation, Eric in the Land of Insects takes us on a visually stunning journey charting the lifecycle of insects and humans, love, death and friendship.
