A Few Thoughts...

Esperanza Collado's text Things Said Once and my ramblings A Few Thoughts on the Moving Image were both conceived for presentation and publication in Tehran as part of the recent Experimental Film Society events there. As well as being published and printed by Lajevardi Foundation, Esperanza also presented Things Once Said as a performative talk in Lajevardi gallery, Tehran. Unfortunately I was unable to join my EFS colleagues in Tehran, and subsequently my text was omitted from print there. However it is now available on EFS Publications and Things Once Said has since been published in La Furia Umana, thanks to Toni D'Angela.

Now the evenings are pulling in and the weather's getting nippier, you might be on the lookout for something interesting to watch. Why not pop over to the Experimental Film Society video on demand page where nearly fifty medium and feature length films by Rouzbeh Rashidi, Dean Kavanagh, Michael Higgins and yours sincerely are available to view?

Full details and trailer can be found here.
