This is like something from the Renaissance or something. – Iggy Pop
A torrential blues litany, tickling the limits of hope. – CineLapsus
This screening is a UK premiere
An offbeat, satirical and beautifully-shot film about Nothing, in which Nothing, tired of being misunderstood, runs away from home and begins to reveal his thoughts on pretty much everything, from life and death to love and politics.
Shot over eight years by 62 cinematographers in 70 countries, this essay-film is narrated in verse by Iggy Pop and scored by cabaret grandmasters Pascal Comelade and the Tiger Lillies. Humorous and self-reflexive, it interweaves moments of playful superficiality with insightful commentary and formal lyricism, challenging us to reconsider the significance of life, the universe and film today.
