    that’s lovely, haven’t seen it but it looks great. I will recommend not quite an ethnographic film but maybe like an ethnographic music video? I have always loved this song and video and consider it my own private mission statement for the anthropological sensibility I’d like to cultivate, at least in its joyful and affirming mode (rather than it’s hardcore critical mode)–an attentive appreciation and even wonder at the small gesture, at all the different ways the body can configure itself. The artists are relentless sound and image archivists but they stitch everything together with so much intelligence and humor. But it’s ultimately really moving. Plus, catch a small multispecies wink when the song really starts flowering.
