Through the Magnifying Glass
Nature documentarians Claude Nuridsany and Marie Perennou’s 1996 film, Microcosmos, is screening tonight at the Florence Gould Hall in NYC. The eye-opening film highlights the startling dichotomy of power and fragility that exists in nature. For 80 minutes, the lives of the world’s tiniest creatures are magnified on the big screen and the everyday drama of the life we don’t often see is told through arresting cinematography and a haunting (and at times humorous) score — we won’t soon forget a snail love scene set to opera music.
Though the film is in French without subtitles, there is minimal dialogue so non-French speakers shouldn’t shy away. Tickets available here.This entry was posted on Tuesday, January 31st, 2012 at 8:43 pm and is filed under Events, Uncategorized. You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2.0 feed.
