Every third Sunday of the month Kriterion in Amsterdam screens one of the documentaries from the IDFA 2017 selection. This month it's In Praise of Nothing, a feelgood documentary about 'Nothing', a character that travels around the world and comments on everything.
Iggy Pop lends his voice to the main character. Sometimes lingering, sometimes restless, the rhythm of his narration has its visual counterpart in a series of documentary images of nothing filmed all over the world by 62 cinematographers. The footage complements or contrasts with the text, or leaves us guessing at a possible connection. The world according to Nothing is a vision about everything.
