Marcel Dzama’s short film is called “Une Danse Des Bouffons” (The Jester’s Dance).
Kim Gordon has a starring role, and the soundtrack is by members of Arcade Fire.
A four-song single will be included in the Music issue of The Believer, out next week.
Check out this very cool trailer.
Here’s a description of the film from the film’s Fawcebook page:
In this Dadaist love story “Une Danse Des Bouffons/A Jester’s Dance”, there are many recurring themes: death and rebirth, multiple identities and doppelgängers, false prophets, love and love lost, the corruption of power and fragility of what is real or true.
Using a recreation of Marcel Duchamp’s Étant Donnés, a trickster of old mythology awakens Maria Martins (played by Kim Gordon and Hannelore Knuts) from the sculpture. She finds her lover (a captive Marcel Duchamp) forced to recite chess moves to an unknown game. So Maria must enter a deep rabbit hole to save her love.
Thanks Consequence of Sound!
