Millennium Film Workshop at The New School Presents: Nicolas Rey

Millennium Film Workshop at The New School Presents: Nicolas Rey

Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Auditorium (Room N101), Sheila C. Johnson Design Center
General Public 

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.
