DOPPELGANGERS3 Trailer: Futurist Doc to Preem at SXSW
A bit of odd from across the pond. Doppelgängers3 is a new doc from BFI Doc Society & Sundance institute, directed by Nelly Ben Hayoun-Stépanian. Their doc is selected for the Feature Documentary, Vision Category at SXSW and it is having its world premiere tomorrow night at the festival and the trailer has just come available for us to have a look.
Doppelgängers3 is not a conventional science documentary about a speculative plan for the moon. It asks: what if we make a plan for the moon that includes voices from the periphery, and nations that have known the perils of a colonialist mindset first-hand? In this film, three stories unite distinct locations in the formulation of a utopian community. At the same time, we gain unique access to a new analogue space training site run by Astroland Interplanetary Agency: a deep cave in Spain where astronauts are trained to live in close quarters and to explore the unpredictable and the unknown.
World sales are being handled by our friends at Alief who directed this trailer to us this morning. ''We are thrilled to be representing world sales of this extraordinary futurist feature film. Doppelgängers3 is a joyful, emotional experience into interplanetary travel in the very near future propelled by a punk-rock attitude and kick-ass soundtrack''
Doppelgängers3  draws on the experience of diasporas to challenge the commercialisation of the moon. Through encounters with doppelgängers and meetings with scientists, visionaries and cultural inventors, Nelly Ben Hayoun-Stépanian and her doppelgängers offer an experimental vision and template for a future diaspora beyond Earth. How will human inhabitants of the moon understand origin, borders and nations?
The film culminates in an analog space mission in a deep cave in Spain in which we see Ben Hayoun-Stépanian and her doppelgangers experiencing a moon utopia. But things do not go according to plan... 
A visual, sonic experience with music by Pussy Riot, Colin Self, Mirrored Fatality and Asmodessa. A film shot in Algeria and Armenia, supported by Sundance Institute and Sandbox Films with BFI Doc Society Fund.
