Product Overview

In his first feature film, maverick indie director Jim Finn delivers a modern-day cult classic way outside the realm of traditional Hollywood fare.

With his trademark ironic humor, Finn uses propaganda, news footage, models, historic images, and guinea pigs to fashion a film with distinct visuals and a unique point of view. Interkosmos also includes hip choreographed numbers, a la Busby Berkeley, with retro 1970s music that makes it difficult to stop tapping your feet.

Outlandish, outrageous, and out of this world, Interkosmos was called one of the best undistributed films of 2006 by Indiewire magazine.

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review A delightfully tongue-in-cheek homage to a fictional East German space project, Jim Finn's "Interkosmos" uses recreated newsreels combined with musical interludes to resurrect the '70s in all its Brezhnev-era glory. Similar in its mockumentary approach to "First People on the Moon" but with a broader sense of wry fun, pic uncannily captures the self-glorifying hyperbole and straight-faced seriousness of the Communist bloc's attempts to make a splash in the race to space...More a series of similarly-themed sketches than a cohesively flowing unit, pic imagines East Germany leading the way in efforts to colonize the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. Participating in the grand scheme for the betterment of an anti-capitalist world are cosmonauts Seagull (Nandini Khaund) and Falcon (helmer Finn), whose hesitant space romance, over intergalactic static, forms the core -- a deadpan recitation of "The Trolley Song" is priceless. Color footage is suitably tinged orange-pink with age, and music and art direction are impeccable; as a final tease, exit music is longer than in "Gone With the Wind."

Quotes
Guy Madden, Director of The Saddest Music in the World What a delight! How charming and fantastic, so full of rare atmospheres.
Neil Young, Jigsaw Lounge ...a skilfully-executed faux-documentary...an impressively idiosyncratic and strikingly confident debut...that is very hard to dislike.
