A surreal film that Iggy Pop narrates will be available to stream later this month.
In Praise of Nothing is an Avant Garde, satirical documentary in which Iggy plays ‘The Voice of Nothing’. The film explores what the concept of ‘Nothing’ would say to humans if it could speak. As the voice of ‘Nothing’, Iggy narrates throughout.
Now, streaming platform Mubi has announced that the film will be available to exclusively stream from June 21. You can find out more about the release here.

Described as “a whistleblowing documentary parody,” the 78-minute film – which took almost ten years to make – is entirely composed of fixed shots filmed by 68 film-makers in over 70 countries.
Iggy Pop can be heard throughout narrating over the shots as ‘Nothing’, commenting on what the concept observes – speaking in rhyme throughout.
The book, called ‘Til Wrong Feels Right, will feature lyrics from over 100 of Iggy Pop’s songs together with photos, memorabilia, never-before-seen notes and essays penned by Iggy himself.
