The Fourth Dimension is a triptych from VICE Films. Three filmmakers – Harmony Korine (USA), Alexsei Fedorchenko (Russia), Jan Kwiecinski (Poland) – were tasked with creating 30-minute shorts under a set of rules:
Someone must sing a song that is completely made up.
There needs to be a character named "Mickey House."
Someone should wear tap shoes.
A stuffed animal needs to make an appearance.
The director must direct one scene from the film with a blindfold on over his or her eyes. We will choose that scene.
We must hear someone tell a great story. The story must be something that has actually happened to the writer/director in real life, something that they have never revealed to anyone else.
A character must say "Don't worry, I'm sure you will survive."
We need to see what the sky looks like where you are filming.
In the American third, Val Kilmer plays a motivational speaker named "Val Kilmer."
The San Francisco International Film Festival will host its world premiere on (heh) April 20, after which it will screen at the Tribeca Film Festival.
