Jim Finn (b. St. Louis, 1968) uses humor and historical fiction to examine ideology, capitalism and revolutionary art practices. His work has screened at international festivals like Rotterdam, AFI and Edinburgh as well as museums and cinematheques such as the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid, the Danish Film Institute and the Harvard Film Archive. His latest work is a trilogy of feature-length films looking at Marxist ideology. The first of these, Interkosmos, was called "a retro gust of communist utopianism" by the Village Voice and "charming and fantastic, so full of rare atmospheres" by Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin. His second feature La Trinchera Luminosa del Presidente Gonzalo was put on the Village Voice's Top 10 Year in Experimental Film. And Variety called The Juche Idea "brilliant" and said all three films "upturn notions of documentary and fiction, propaganda thought, reality and restaging, and even what an 'experimental film' actually is."
