MINUTE BODIES: THE INTIMATE WORLD OF F. PERCY SMITH

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.

Presented as part of the 2019 Cleveland Humanities Festival (theme: “Nature”), coordinated by the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities at CWRU. Visit chf.case.edu for a complete list of festival programs. CWRU I.D. holders $7.
