They are also hosting his deliriously intense Homo Sapiens Project (157), shot in Spain last year in which I appear only to be upstaged by Cacahuete the dog and Zulueta the cat. Like my Background (2011), it is shot around and owes much to the atmopshere of Leve, the artistic association run by Rafael Martinez Del Pozo and Esperanza Collado (both also in the cast) in the remote village of Castro de Cepeda in Leon.
Last but far from least, Florian Maricourt's thesis on remodernism and remodernist film Le cinéma remoderniste: Histoire et théorie d’une esthétique contemporaine is complete. It finally gives Dean Kavanagh and Rouzbeh Rashidi the sort of lengthy, in-depth, serious critical attention their work so richly deserves. The text is in French and is a final year dissertation directed by Nicole Brenez. It can be read here.
