This kaleidoscopic ride takes us into a world governed by fabric, brightly coloured patterns and sundry textures. The film’s extravagant kinetic stop-motion animation conjures up a highly original image of a globally connected world, of the relentless movement of objects and people, and of their cultures and lives, whose nature is reflected in textiles and their circulation.


Synopsis

This kaleidoscopic ride shot on 16 mm film takes us on a frenetic excursion into a world governed by fabric, bright, variegated patterns and sundry textures. The extravagant kinetics of the film’s stop-motion animation conjures up a highly original image of a globally connected world, the relentless movement of objects and people, and their cultures and lives, whose nature is reflected in textiles and their circulation. Commodities become signifiers of international capitalism while also prompting questions regarding their means of production. A parade of infectious energy and vivid colours, The Grand Bizarre is the extraordinary feature debut by talented experimental filmmaker Jodie Mack.
