United Kingdom | 2016 | Stuart A. Staples
Tindersticks, the alternative rock band that has scored six films for Claire Denis, provides new recorded music for a series of short, silent nature films made in the early 1900s by pioneering British naturalist and documentarian F. Percy Smith (1880-1945). Recently restored by the British Film Institute, Smith’s movies feature breathtaking time-lapse micro-cinematography of plants, insects, microbes, et al. This may be the most psychedelic b&w movie you’ve ever seen! DCP. 55 min.
