About The Book
The first book on pioneering French filmmaker Jean Painlev�, the father of science cinema.
One of the first to plunge underwater with a camera to bring the subaquatic world to the screen, maverick scientific documentary filmmaker Jean Painlev� (1902-1989) captured the throes of a male seahorse giving birth, the geometric choreography of crystal formation, and the mating habits of hermaphrodite mollusks. In a lifetime spanning nearly the history of cinema itself, Painlev� made over 200 films, including The Seahorse, Freshwater Assassins, The Vampire, and The Love Life of the Octopus. His lyrical and instructive animal behavior films set to avant-garde scores were much admired by Surrealist contemporaries such as Antonin Artaud, Luis Bu�uel, and Jean Vigo.
Science Is Fiction includes Marina McDougall’s historically informative Hybrid Roots, Brigitte Berg’s heavily illustrated biographical essay Contradictory Forces, art critic Ralph Rugoff’s Fluid Mechanics, a Lib�ration interview with Painlev�, stills from Painlev�’s most celebrated films laid out in storyboard fashion, and a selection of Painlev�’s writings appearing for the first time in English. The latter include Neo-Zoological Drama, a playful romp on the behavior of Turbellaria, or flatworms; Mysteries and Miracles of Nature, an idiosyncratic catalog of unusual animal behavior; and Scientific Film, a discussion of science films that pays homage to Painlev�’s fellow pioneers. The book also includes French film critic Andr� Bazin’s Science Film: Accidental Beauty, a review of the 1947 International Association of Science Film festival, organized by Painlev�.
