Iggy Pop plays the role of Nothing in Boris Mitics genre-defying feel-good film which is cobbled together from footage from 70 countries, shot by 62 cinematographers, over a period of eight years. The premise is simple: Nothing is tired of being misunderstood and has decided to set the record straight by way of a long and lyrical monologue on the nature of existence. IN PRAISE OF NOTHING is alternately poetic, pompous, satirical, self-absorbed, witty, insightful, flippant and philosophical – but never less than fascinating. This is the best thing Nothing has done since “Seinfeld”.
Director Boris Mitic will hold a masterclass on How to film anything and nothing at Bergen Media City Tuesday 02 October. Read more.
