Outdoor Cinema 2014: MicrocosmosSocrates Sculpture Park
32-01 Vernon Blvd, NY
You'll never view insects quite the same way after an encounter with Microcosmos. Directed by Claude Nuridsany and Marie Perénnou, the 1996 French film employs custom cameras and lenses to capture meadow-dwelling bugs as they carry on with their daily lives. Enlightening, educational, and entertaining, the film should be required viewing for all. Screening tonight as part of the Socrates Sculpture Park's Outdoor Cinema, Microcosmos is preceded by the 60's French pop stylings of Les Sans Culottes. The band goes on at 7pm. And as always, there's free kayaking and canoeing from Hallet's Cove.
