The filmmakers moved slowly around the world, using a technique called pixilation, shooting one frame every few steps. The result is that the stone seems to be hurtling through the sky even though the filmmakers would have had to walk for an hour or more to assemble two seconds of flight. Flight of the Stone, followed by short film Folklore Restaurant, begins at 2 p.m. 1001 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-639-7300 or visit www.mfah.org. Free.
