Synopsis

“In Praise of Nothing” is a satirical documentary parable about Nothing, in which Nothing, tired of being misunderstood, runs away from home and comes to address us for the first and the last time.

Researched through 20.000 pages of what’s probably the most eclectic bibliography ever used in a documentary film; shot in 70 countries by 62 cinematographers collaborating through a unique anonymous brainstorming platform; scored by cabaret grandmasters Pascal Comelade and The Tiger Lillies; narrated - in wall-to-wall rhymes - by Iggy Pop.
