Rouzbeh Rashidi has completed a haunting and mysterious new 65-minute film called Tenebrous City and Ill-Lighted Mortals
. Approximately two-thirds of it is constructed from unused footage that I shot with Ed Malone for ...And The Poor Bird Died
back in 2008. I'm honoured and delighted that Rouzbeh chose to work with these tapes. He has at once understood perfectly the essence of the images and performances, and made it something completely his own. His use of still images is especially powerful in this film.
