Synopsis: Before Attenborough and Cousteau there was Jean Painlev,. Poetic pioneer of science films, Painlev, explored a twilight realm of vampire bats, seahorses, octopi, and liquid crystals. In collaboration with his life-partner GeneviSve Hamon, Painlev, made more the 200 science and nature films and was an early champion of the genre. Possessing a remarkable eye for life's eerie curiosities, Painlev,'s art pivots on the premise that science is fiction . He created a landscape of bug-eyed wonderment marked by a playful sense of nature's poetry and scandalized the scientific world with a cinema designed to entertain as well as edify. In the process he won over the circle of Surrealists and avant-gardists and counted amongst his friends Antonin Artaud, Sergei Eisenstein, Jean Vigo and Luis Buuel. Painlev,'s astonishing documentaries witness a genuinely magic realism , which continues to enchant audiences around the world. This selection from 50 years of passionate scientific enquiry includes Painlev,'s most famous films The Seahorse, The Vampire, The Love Life of the Octopus and Sea Urchins with their often amazing music. Yo La Tengo's place in rock history is unique few bands in memory dare to experiment quite so widely with such casual audacity. From screeching art-rock and jangling pop songs to electronic soundscapes and hushed lullabies, their music explores the range of musical history without sounding less than modern. In 2001 the band was selected by the San Francisco International Film Festival committee to compose new music for the films of Jean Painlev,. Their alternately sombre and joyously mood music seemed like a natural for Painlev,'s dramatic underwater studies.
