HEREUNDER Hilltown Stills

These stills are of Hereunder as it appeared at the Hilltown Music Festival last month. They're by curator Anthony Kelly, who was responsible for the inspired installation of this video by Vicky and me. Many thanks to him and David Stalling for including it...

Raoul Ruiz 1941-2011

It's impossible to overestimate what Ruiz's films have meant to me, the extent of their influence on me as a filmmaker and a human being... Second to none. They are with me always, reflected in the world around me always.

It's equally impossible to believe that Ruiz, of all people, can be consigned to a category as closed and definitive as 'death'...

And, yet, the world is so much poorer now, so much poorer...
