Meet the 2012 Tribeca Filmmakers #35: 'The Fourth Dimension' Director Jan Kwiecinski
"The Fourth Dimension" is made up of three short films. The two shorts that aren't by Harmony Korine are directed by lesser-known Polish filmmaker Jan Kwiecinski and Russian filmmaker Alexey Fedorchenko. As with anything launched by Vice Films (in partnership with Grolsh Filmworks), this is no ordinary omnibus project. All of the films had to follow four pages of very specific, weird rules such as "Someone should wear tap shoes" and "There needs to be a character named Mickey House."
Director Jan Kwiecinski says: "We were asked to write the stories which explored the fourth dimension. My film is about a group of friends who decide to stay in the abandoned village evacuated by the flood's alarm. Soon they discover that they're not alone..."
His background: "I come from moviegoers family. My father is a producer. I was on the film sets from my early childhood. It didn't take me a lot of time to realise that there is nothing more beautiful and fullfiliing that having the opportunity to tell stories through movies. So making them was very organic decision. I've never actually choose it, it just happened."
What would you like Tribeca audiences to come away with after seeing your film? I hope it's 105 minutes of forgetting about the world around and maybe a unique chance to reach the fourth dimension...
Did any specific films inspire you? The Wizard of Oz.
Indiewire invited Tribeca Film Festival directors to tell us about their films, including what inspired them, the challenges they faced and what they're doing next. We'll be publishing their responses leading up to the 2012 festival.
