Insignificance Diretto da Nicolas Roeg

1985 | Vincitore: Technical Grand Prize


Playwright Terry Johnson’s script combines real-life history (e.g., Monroe’s marriage to DiMaggio) with absurdist humour (the scene where Russell’s Actress explains the theory of relativity is hilarious and sexy) and a poetic, potent sense of postwar nostalgia, all filtered through Roeg’s trademark jump-cut style, which explodes the piece’s arch theatrical origins.

Hiroshima, HUAC, Reaganoia, 1945, 1954, 1985: Insignificance explores and explodes each of these episodes and eras of the American century, not to obliterate them (much as it might like to) but to piece them back, kaleidoscopically, together, right before our eyes.

A game and a provocation built around this dilemma, Insignificanceimplicitly dares us to sort out the differences between fact and fantasy by playing riffs with the images we already have of DiMaggio, Einstein, McCarthy, and Monroe. Thus paranoia, apocalyptic visions, and cartoon-like notions of sex are invited to intermingle and merge.
