In Pandea Child, a polymorphic narrator lets you know that everything will be ok as they are absorbed into the hive mind ecosystem of an alien planet. The film mediates on the notion of a complete sensory shift, in which the new senses of an alien body begin to shade over into a new kind of language and a new kind of communication.

As you follow the narrator's experiences through a textural soundscape, a host of tentacular forms fade in and out of focus. Silicon valley lifestyle brand melodies give way to crunchy body horror as the narrator sighs - ‘a thought for every organism you can see, one for every atom maybe’. Pandea Child imagines becoming a world and thinking with all beings at once, and we can see, reflected in the image of this holobiont alien planet, a vision of solidarity with our pale blue dot.
