In Praise of Nothing

Boris Mitić, Serbia, Croatia, France, 2017, 78’

“In Praise of Nothing” is a whistle-blowing documentary parody about Nothing, in which Nothing, tired of being misunderstood, runs away from home and comes to address us for the first and last time. It was researched over 8 years through the most eclectic bibliography ever used in a documentary film; brainstormed and filmed by 62 superstar and amateur cinematographers in 70 countries, scored by cabaret grand-masters Pascal Comelade and the Tiger Lillies and narrated – in simple childlike verse – by Iggy Pop.
