DIFFERENTLY MOLUSSIA

France, 2012 (MIFF 2013, International Panorama)

Director: Nicolas Rey

MIFF is proud to present filmmaker Nicolas Rey's extraordinary, randomised film experiment.

In differently, Molussia there are nine chapters. Before each screening the order of the chapters is selected at random, creating 362,880 different versions of the film. Your experience will be unique, but what will it mean?

A breathtaking odyssey through both the history and future of cinema, differently, Molussia is a transcendent meditation on the eerily prescient 1930s work of anti-fascist German author Günther Anders. Shooting entirely on expired rolls of 16mm film, Rey has crafted a film that is as much a textural event as it is a philosophical reflection. Deeply atmospheric and unashamedly high-minded, this is cinema at its most remarkable and challenging - a startling journey to the heart of what makes film ‘film'.
