Sounds of Science
Director: Jean Painlevé
Music: Yo La Tengo

The mesmerizing science films of Jean Painlevé (1902-89) are at once surrealist-influenced dream shorts and serious science documentaries. The pioneering French scientist-educator-filmmaker -inventor (and sometime Dadaist) had a decades-spanning career in which he created hundreds of short films on subjects ranging from astronomy to pigeons to, most famously, the curiosities of marine-life.

The eight short films in the Sounds of Science screening are accompanied by an equally hypnotic and dreamy score by rock band Yo La Tengo.
