Mutiny employs a panoply of expression, gesture, and repea- ted movement. Its central images are of women: at home, on the street, at the workplace, at school, talking, singing, jum- ping on trampolines, playing the violin.
In his scientific efforts to capture the transit of Venus, the French astronomer Pierre Janssen de- vised an ingenious contraption known as ‘photographic revolver’, enabling one to take a rapid se- ries of successive images. The result was not as expected: we did not manage to get an accurate record of the 1874 transit, but his gadget was the predecessor of the motion-picture camera. The connections between film and astronomy go far back in time; no wonder filmmakers – especially the experimental ones – have always been fascinated by the sky and the stars, ready to express man’s wonder at the beauty of the cosmos.
