Director: Jim Finn. Runtime: 17.5 minutes.
Interkosmos began as a short film about an East German space mission whose communist mascot was a guinea pig, but grew to include a space capsule interior, a dance number that could’ve been choreographed by Wes Anderson, and an intergalactic love story.
Director: Jim Finn. Runtime: 70 minutes.
About the filmmaker:
“Steeped in the obsolete language of revolutionary art,” The New York Times said Jim Finn’s films “often play like unearthed artifacts from an alternate universe.” His movies have been called “Utopian comedies” and “trompe l’oeil films.” Born in 1968, he lives, teaches, and raises small humans in Brooklyn.
