Millennium Film Workshop at The New School Presents: Nicolas Rey
Tuesday, November 12, 2013 at 7:00 pm
Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Auditorium (Room N101), Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 66 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10003
Nicolas Rey has been making films that hover between photography, documentaries and the avant-garde since 1993. He will appear in person to present and discuss differently, Molussia (2012 | France | 81m | 16mm), a film in nine chapters, shown in random order and based on fragments from the novel Günther Differently wrote between 1932 and 1936 : The Molussian Catacomb. Prisoners sitting in the pits of an imaginary fascist state, Molussia, transmit one another stories about the outside world like a series of political and philosophical fables. There are 362,880 ways of arranging the nine reels, and so one can reasonably regard every screening as a world premiere.
The processing of the original material and the printing of 16 mm prints of differently, Molussia were self-made at L’Abominable, an artist-run film lab installed in France that Rey also co-founded.
Presented by the Millennium Film Workshop in partnership with The School of Media Studies and The New School for Public Engagement. The Millennium Film Workshop is a non-profit media arts center. Since 1994 it has promoted the exhibition, production, and study of avant-garde and alternative film, video, and media arts.
The Nicholas Rey touring exhibition is also supported in part by a grant from Cine2000, a program of FACE (French American Cultural Exchange), and the New York State Council on the Arts.
Sponsored by the School of Media Studies.
