You absolutely must watch this new trailer for NOVA: The Film, a new documentary produced by ROJO™ in collaboration with BossaNovaFilms. It’s rare to see an art doc as fresh and vibrant at this one promises to be. I literally just finished watching the trailer and plan on watching the full film in its entirety later this weekend (you can watch the complete film for free below!) The doc was filmed at Nova Contemporary Culture™ which happened in July and August 2010, in MIS-Museum of Image and Sound, and SESC Pompeia, in São Paulo, Brazil (the latest one is happening right now: March 21 – April 30, 2011). More than 140 selected artists from around the world came together to feature live music & audiovisuals; live performances, video screenings, outdoor art installations, round tables, experimental gastronomy, artist presentations, and many unpredictable social consequences. Yatzer describes the film as such:
Inspiration, collaboration, progress, and mental exploration are the ingredients behind this film, which presents to the public the creative process behind a work of art. Artists speak about their practice and share through this film their thoughts and their attitudes. Young and ambitious, creative and motivated, the artists expose themselves in an inspirational documentary, which pays tribute to each one of these dazzling minds! It proves once more that there is more to the creative process than meets the eye.
I seriously can’t wait to watch this, and I’m still amazed it’s for free. Kudos to the producers for putting something like this out there for the world to enjoy and spark such a wonderful dialogue, without concern for profit. And what an amazing promotional tool for Nova Contemporary Culture™ as well (click to learn more). I’m definitely intrigued and would love to some day check out this conference in person. Here’s the trailer for NOVA: The Film, and below the trailer is the film in its entirety (75 minutes):
