Canadian "film for computer" will surreal up your whole day

John Moe Aug 24, 2011

The National Film Board of Canada has commissioned director Vincent Morisset to make a “film for computer.”

Watch it here if you dare. But be warned: your brains may spill out the sides of your head.

It’s an awesome, interactive acid trip of a movie that you guide through chapters with your cursor. Totally worth it, and now I know where all the free Canadian movies are, eh. Sadly, a quick search on the NFB site shows no signs of “Strange Brew”, thus proving that the NFB is a bunch of hosers who should take off, eh.
