The Tribeca Film Festival is coming up in April, and you can bet that we mighty Flixist forces will be there covering it for you. One film at this year's festival that ought to be especially fascinating is the anthology The Fourth Dimension. Here's a synopsis to go with the trailer above:
A motivational speaker named Val Kilmer (played by Val Kilmer) delivers a sermon at a roller rink. A Russian scientist builds a time machine in his apartment. Four friends stumble upon an abandoned village in the Polish countryside. All are in search of the fourth dimension -- whether they know it or not. Weird, ominous, cool, compelling: These three short films could only be inspired by the creative vision of Harmony Korine and Vice Media's Eddy Moretti.
(Please feel free to re-read the above synopsis like T-Pain.) I wonder how each of these stories thematically address the idea of the fourth dimension, whatever the fourth dimension may be. I mean, are we talking about space-time? A way of thinking beyond three-dimensional space? Another world parallel to our own? The Devo song?
Look for our review of The Fourth Dimension during the Tribeca Film Festival, which runs from April 18th to the 29th.
