Minute Bodies: The Intimate World of F Percy Smith
DIRECTOR: STUART A. STAPLES
A most unusual and unexpectedly perfect artistic teaming of sorts, Minute Bodies brings together the sounds of tindersticks frontman (and frequent Claire Denis collaborator) Stuart A. Staples and the mesmerizing imagery of British filmmaker, inventor, and naturalist F. Percy Smith, an innovator in the field of nature photography who revealed an entire world hidden to the naked eye using micro-photography, time-lapse, slow-motion, and the whole battery of camera tricks. A must for science buffs, while others might want to time their arrival in the theater for when the edibles hit.
An Icarus Films release.
Screening in the series Late Nites at Metrograph over two weekends:
4/4 - 4/6 & 4/11 - 4/13
