About the Film:
A postcard from an imploded society. Bringing mundane objects to life to interpret place through materials, “The Grand Bizarre” transcribes an experience of pattern, labor, and alien[-]nation[s]. A pattern parade in pop music pairs figure and landscape to trip through the topologies of codification. Following components, systems, and samples in a collage of textiles, tourism, language, and music, the film investigates recurring motifs and how their metamorphoses function within a global economy.
“In giving primacy to things over people, “The Grand Bizarre” mounts a radical, object-oriented ethnography, one that encapsulates our present, capitalist epoch from within, showcasing the life of the mind by presenting the world to us all at once.” – Cinema Scope
