|Sounds kind of interesting:
"THE SOUNDS OF SCIENCE"Do you film buffs know Painleve?
Review by a Yo La Tengo fan.
I saw a number of his films at The Museum of Natural History in the fall of 2000. Sea Horses, Love Life of the Octopus etc. And one where he threw a vampire bat and guinea pig together into a glass tank (shuddering) Hey, thems "nature documentaries" for ya.
Cristinerose has an exhibition of Painlevé photos and films (on video) up in the viewing room through Jan 18. (529 W. 20th). I saw "Love Life of the Octopus" (w/ electronic score by Pierre Henry) and an older short about life in a tide pool last night. Didn't see the bat/guinea pig spectacle though. (I'm kind of glad.)
