A film by Alexis Gambis, Fiction, 16 mm, United States 2010.
Dr. Funque enters the laboratory to start his after-dinner lab chores. He sits comfortably at the bench and prepares a cocktail of solutions that he pours into his petri dish. He would have never thought that that evening he would make an incredible discovery. People, cars, parks, buildings – an entire world was encapsulated inside his petri dish. What turned out like a solitary typical Funque lab evening ends up being a festive exchange with the petri dish city and dwellers.
