Underwater hydrophones have detected an ultra low-frequency sound emanating from a point 1,500 miles off the coast of Chile. No one can explain it. Scientists have dubbed it “the bloop.” Cara Cusumano’s eerily beautiful film explores the mysteries that lie beneath the ocean’s surface. -JC
A shorthand study of the mythology of numbers from 1 to 12, where scientific tradition is adopted, and then eschewed for rumours, legends and defunct theories from across the ages.

A portrait of photographer Denise Bellon, who pioneered the art of photojournalism, Remembrance of Things to Come is bookended by two Surrealist exhibitions (1938 and 1947).
