COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Timo Novotny a remixé le film "Megacities" de Michael Glawoggers. 30% de la pellicule originale + 30% d’images coupées au montage par Glawoggers lui–même + 40% d’images réalisées au Japon pour l’occasion + une nouvelle bande-son extraordinaire. Une plongée en apnée au cœur des grandes capitales et leurs bas-fonds : violence urbaine, pauvreté, pénibilité au travail, sexe, culture underground… De New York à Tokyo en passant par Mexico, Moscou et Bombay.

Multimedia artist Timo Novotny labels his new project an experimental music documentary film, in a remix of the celebrated film Megacities (1997), a visually refined essay on the hidden faces of several world “Megacities” by leading Austrian documentarist Michael Glawogger. Novotny complements 30 % of material taken straight from the film (and re-edited) with 70 % as yet unseen footage in which he blends original shots unused by Glawogger with his own sequences (shot by Megacities cameraman Wolfgang Thaler) from Tokyo. Alongside the Japanese metropolis, Life in Loops takes us right into the atmosphere of Mexico City, New York, Moscow and Bombay. This electrifying combination of fascinating film images and an equally compelling soundtrack from Sofa Surfers sets us off on a stunning audiovisual adventure across the continents. The film also makes an original contribution to the discussion on new trends in documentary filmmaking.
