In the midst of the French Revolution, two astronomers embarked on individual journeys across Europe to measure the Earth and, through their findings, help determine the true length of one meter. Incorporating a performative element of live narration by the filmmakers, The Measures retraces the astronomers’ journeys from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel, exploring the social, intellectual, and political history that surrounded the metric system’s origins as well as the complexities of collaboration. (46 mins., DCP)
