The Nothingness Club
Available to book and watch online Monday 20th to Sunday 26th November.
Surrealistic biopic - a mix of life events and plots and themes of the works of the greatest Portuguese modernist of the 20th century, Fernando Pessoa.
The Nothingness Club is set inside Fernando Pessoa’s head. The writer created over one hundred heteronyms who, despite being fictional characters, had very distinct and personal poetic styles. Within this interior world, the Portuguese, Brazilian, Indian, English and American heteronyms are characters in flesh and blood who work for him at The Nothingness Club, on his writings.
In this utopian universe, Pessoa is a Super-Pessoa, a director who distributes ideas to be developed by his employees. The Nothingness Club is a prosperous business venture with several subsidiaries, such as a publishing house for books and magazines, a film production company, an astrology cabinet, a private detective agency, while providing psychiatric advice as well as giving shelter to young “charadists”.
