Minute Bodies: The Intimate World of F. Percy Smith
Buy on iTunes Buy on Amazon
This meditative, immersive film from Stuart A. Staples (lead singer of Tindersticks, who score this film) is a tribute to the astonishing work and achievements of naturalist, inventor and pioneering filmmaker F. Percy Smith. Smith worked in the early years of the 20th century, developing various cinematographic and micro-photographic techniques to capture nature’s secrets in action. MINUTE BODIES is an interpretive edit that combines Smith’s original footage with a new contemporary score to create a hypnotic, alien yet familiar dreamscape that connects us to the sense of wonder Smith must have felt as he peered through his own lens and saw these microscopic worlds for the first time.
