Michel Gondry And Bjork Want To Be In Museums
Bjork and Michel Gondry have both dabbled in traditional narrative filmmaking, though you wouldn't call either Bjork's performance in Dancer in the Dark or Gondry's films like The Science of Sleep traditional. But with the two of them planning to team up for the first time, there's no plans to make anything close to normal. The Playlist talked to Gondry at SXSW, where he told them that the Bjork project was planned as "like a 40 minute IMAX project in 3D." Yes.
He also called it a "scientific musical" and said it would be more fit for museums. I can't really think of a better thing to be showing America's schoolchildren on field trips, so I'm all for this idea. Gondry said the film was very undefined, which means the 40 minute IMAX project could turn into a three-hour web movie before all is said and done. I'm just glad to know that the project exists, and that Gondry and Bjork seem willing to make it exactly as weird as we expect from them.
