Hello-I'm researching Max Ernst's microbes for an upcoming publication on the artist. Thank you for this very interesting post, which lead me to the movie. I haven't seen it yet but will as soon as it reaches me. I was wondering if you could tell me about the film stills: are these published somewhere or did you do them yourself? Many thanks in advance! Danielle

Hi Danielle. I took these stills myself from the DVD.
Good luck with your research. I'd love to see the finished publication.
all the best, Michael
