Jean Painlevé: Nature Films on 35mm

  • REDCAT 631 WEST 2ND STREET LOS ANGELES, CA 90012 (map)

As much a scientist as a documentary filmmaker, the late Jean Painlevé is known throughout the world for his most exquisite observational renderings of nature. He succeeded in illustrating nature in its surreal beauty and organic poetry, from underwater films of octopi and seahorses to the lives of creatures living instead on land. Presented on 35mm, REDCAT offers a rare chance to see a selection of Painlevé's shorts on celluloid. - SBP
