The Bubbleologist

  • Samsam Bubbleman needs only two ingredients – soap and water – to make something magical. For more than a decade, Samsam has dedicated his life to creating dazzling, kaleidoscopic bubble art. He’s a professional, with multiple Guinness World Records, and a company that produces a wide range of bubble toys. But bubbles are much more than a job for Samsam: he knows his soapy, colour-drenched creations can lift spirits, unlock life’s secrets, and reverse time, turning grown-ups back into children. This lighthearted film explores the science and philosophy of bubble-making, through the eyes of a man who has harnessed their magic, and can make them come – spectacularly, colourfully – alive.

    I’ve known the magic of bubbles and the healing joyfulness they bring for more than a century now. Take a deep breath and when you exhale, imagine filling the world with the colorful effervescence you see in this film. Be of good cheer!
