Former journalist, Boris Mitić thrives on finding creative solutions to boring or cinematically impossible themes. He plays blitz chess, writes satirical columns, makes populist elitist films and lectures in offbeat ways at academic and industry events worldwide.
ONCE UPON A NOTHING, 2016
For the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement, Boris Mitić presents Once upon a nothing, an impressionist parabole. In this work-in-progress documentary parody, Nothing, tired of being misunderstood, runs away from home and comes to address us for the first and last time. Nothing’s narration, distilled from the most eclectic bibliography ever used in a documentary film, is metaphorically illustrated by a unique ‘documentary footage of Nothing’ filmed by dozens of complementary cinematographers from around the world, in an anonymous online brainstorming process that will be presented at BIM parallel to the film.
(This film’s postproduction has been made in the studios of the Cinéma du réel of the HEAD – Genève)
