Science Is Fiction: 23 Films by Jean Painleve Jean Painleve was a film director, critic, theorist, and animator, yet his interests and studies also extended to mathematics, medicine, and zoology. Amazingly, all these disparate strands came together in a ground breaking, decades-spanning artistic career. Operating under the credo "Science is fiction," Painleve forged his own unique cinematic path, creating countless short films for both the viewing public and the scientific community. He was also one of the first filmmakers to take his camera underwater. Surreal, otherworldly documents of marine life, these films transformed sea horses, octopi and mollusks into delicate dancers in their own floating ballets. This anthology features 23 of Painleve's shorts in their original form, as well as Yo La Tengo's 90-minute original score "The Sounds of Science," written in 2001 to accompany eight of the director's films. A three-disc set. Extras: Interviews, booklet featuring a new essay by film scholar Scott MacDonald and notes on all the films by Painleve. (The Criterion Collection).
