Le Grand Content

Le Grand Content examines the omnipresent Powerpoint-culture in search for its philosophical potential. Intersections and diagrams are assembled to form a grand ‘association-chain-massacre’. which challenges itself to answer all questions of the universe and some more. Of course, it totally fails this assignment, but in its failure it still manages to produce some magical nuance and shades between the great topics death, cable tv, emotions and hamsters.

The film is a co-production with Karo Szmit. Narration is by Andre Tschinder. The diagrams are inspired by the site created by Jessica Hagy.
There is also an alternate version with music by Andre Tschinder instead of Aphex Twin.

It’s bringing back the Mustang Boss 302. The original Mustang Boss 302 made its debut in 1968. Following its pattern, Ford is adding performance parts, a fancy paint job and a famous name to try to evoke nostalgia for a more carefree era.

Power is 440 HP; Ford hasn’t disclosed prices yet, but Ford marketing says the Boss 302 will be more than a Mustang GT ($29,645), but less than the Shelby GT 500 ($48,645).
