World Premiere

Igor et Ivan Buharov
Ayahuasca, radio waves, paranormal
phenomena…Here are some of the ingredients
of this new work filmed in 8mm by the Buharov
brothers – an unfettered fantasy. In addition,
there is a cactus and other plants, unexplained
skin breakouts, a handful of magi and a
mysterious mayor who completes the cast
of this film about a modicum of science and,
above all, fiction. In this wacky world there is
a vast array of whimsical characters, each one
undertaking their own personal metaphysical/
futuristic quest. The film is an ode to a kind
of anarchy, a heterogeneous mishmash joyously
made on a shoestring, like films from the dawn of
the industry. Moreover, it’s a fairy-tale
swarming with echoes of recent events and
contemporary political questions in Hungary and beyond.
(Nicolas Feodoroff)
