Area Premiere November 20–24

(2014) dir Tim Grabham, Jasper Sharp [81 min; DCP]
A real life science-fiction movie exploring a world creeping right beneath our feet, where time and space are magnified and intelligence redefined. THE CREEPING GARDEN is a feature length creative documentary exploring the work of fringe scientists, mycologists, and artists – and their relationship with the extraordinary plasmodial slime mold.

With an original soundtrack composed by celebrated musician and producer Jim O’Rourke (Sonic Youth) this is a unique exploration into a hitherto untapped subject matter, observing and immersing the audience into the worlds of the observers and the observed.

“Grabham and Sharp explore slime molds with a dry wit, showcasing this byproduct of decay in sterile laboratories and shooting the creeping goo (like the Blob in miniature) with a Lynchian beauty… Heady and rigorous, THE CREEPING GARDEN is an illuminating science documentary that tickles the imagination. Jim O’Rourke’s eerie sci-fi score emphasizes the otherworldly nature of the subject matter.” – Serena Donadoni, The Village Voice

“A surprising investigation of perception, thought and life itself.” – Nicolas Rapold, The New York Times

“Heady and rigorous, The Creeping Garden is an illuminating science documentary that tickles the imagination.” –
