Marcel is the story of an unlikely encounter between Duchamp, Broodthaers and Mariën: an unusual succession of absurd scenes and of unexpected events, where the old ghosts of surrealism reappear. The film is based on L’Imitation du cinéma (1959) by Marcel Mariën, which in turn is a satire of L’Imitation de la vie de Jesus-Christ, a widely read theological treatise from the fifteenth century. Marcel is also simultaneously the joint pseudonym of the makers of the film, a.o. o.a. Douglas Park, Eleonore Saintagnan, Filip Gilissen, Gregoire Motte, Jean-Philippe Convert, Kosten Koper, Simona Denicolai & Ivo Provoost, Thibaut Espiau, part of KOMPLOT. During the premiere Mariën’s film will also be shown again.
