Video: Peter Greenaway's 'Darwin'

The film is structured around 18 separate tableaux, each focusing on another chapter in the naturalist's life, and each consisting of just one long uninterrupted shot.

  1. I hadn't seen this Greenaway film before, many many thanks for putting it on your site. It was wonderful, aesthetically stunning and philosophically interesting. An excellent mix of art and science.
