Second Sunday Cinema
"My Life as a Turkey" & "Proteus" are Second Sunday Cinema's Free Films for July 13
There are ordinary, good nature documentaries and then there are these two! Both lead us into a profoundly moving connection with nature and its beauty. In the first film, we join a biologist as he hatches a clutch of wild turkey eggs and then rears and lives with the birds as they mature. He lives with them so intimately that nature itself allows him -- and us -- access to a world we never see.
In the second, we share the profound vision of 19th century biologist and artist Ernst Haeckel, who was fascinated by the beautiful forms of the natural world. One of his passions was radiolaria, minute species of protozoa that produce intricate exoskeletons of amazing beauty. Here is filmmaking at its finest, creating a rapturous dance of music, film, watercolors and natural forms.
As always, these films are free. Come for both films or just one. Each is about an hour long. Our venue is the Clearlake United Methodist Church at 14521 Pearl Ave. Clearlake. The date is Sunday, July 13. Doors open at 5:45 PM with the first film starting at 6PM. Info: 889-7355
