The Grand Bizarre
Directed by Jodie Mack • 2018 • United States
The result of over five years of filming in fifteen countries, the dazzling debut feature from experimental animator Jodie Mack is an eye-popping and ear-pleasing study of textile patterns around the world. Edited in rapid-fire rhythm and set to a homemade pop soundtrack, THE GRAND BIZARRE unfolds as a colorfully kinetic collage of design, tourism, language, and music that investigates the art and commerce of textile production and how it functions within the dizzying whirlwind of the global economy.
