Narrated by Janine herself “Biocentrics” reveals the scientific motives and theories behind the thinking of biomimulators, as the brilliant inventors in this science are called. Accompanying the routines of nine characters in their fields, the film intertwines their stories with images of nature in their completeness, detailing the modus operandi of the Hundred Year Tree, which goes beyond simply providing shade or serving as material for buildings, to evolving strategies for specific species of plants and animals to survive.
