Frames of Representation: How to Film Nothing: Lecture with Boris Mitić

23 Apr 2018

The director of satirical documentary In Praise of Nothing joins us for a special, tongue-in-cheek lecture about Nothing. Boris Mitić presents a quirky overview of the creative and production challenges of making his whistleblowing documentary parody in which he explores his chosen topic and the process of creating a narrative from thousands of hours of footage shot by filmmakers across the globe.

The project started in bankrupt Serbia as a purely rhetorical provocation and took eight years to make, shuffling its way through 20,000 pages of eclectic bibliography, a crew of 62 cinematographers brainstorming on a unique anonymous online platform, and shooting locations across 70 countries.
