The Measure of All Things

Thu 12 Feb 2015

The Measure of All Things is a new live cinema performance by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sam Green (The Weather Underground) with acclaimed chamber group yMusic. 

Loosely inspired by the Guinness Book of Records, Green weaves together a series of moving portraits of record-holding people, places and things: the tallest man, the oldest living thing, the woman with the longest fingernails... 

Drawing on old travelogues, the Benshi tradition and contemporary TED talks, The Measure of All Things is a poignant meditation on the mysteries of existence, our search for meaning, and the beauty and tragedy of human folly.
