I was a few years out of a heavy relationship. We still weren't really talking; things seemed worse than right after we split. I hadn't processed any of it, had instead dived straight in to the basement and worked on A I A. Stopped hanging out with friends; didn't occur to me to try to date, or pay attention to the news, what else was going on in the world. At that time I still wasn't talking about my problems with anyone. I was living by a popular myth, that if I didn't talk about something, it wouldn't be a problem. Ruins helped crack me open.

Llora cuando te pase





-

It'd be remiss of me not to mention here that Laida Lertxundi's superb Cry When it Happens / Llora Cuando Te Pase (2010, 16mm) is streaming at Vdrome for another week, thankfully in HD.

Some other recent-ish links of note: 
Questions for the Frozen SeaThe Everyday (Once More)obligatory notation of the existence of new Dorskys; wind, rain, glass; an interview with Danièle Huillet and Jean-Marie Straub by Hans Hurch (1981) and Introduction to a Straub-Huillet Retrospective (1982); Entrevista con Jean-Claude Rousseau: La Vallée close.

I'm out of the loop when it comes to screenings, but: there are still two A Nos Amours presentations of Sátántangó on 35mm to come in Leeds and NewcastleAlonso (see Quintin), Beavers, Costa (
'all we have are sandwiches'), Diaz, Godard, LertxundiPetzold (etc!) at LFF; Markopoulos at Tate ModernAlexandre Galmard's NM. Also still on: Malevich at Tate.Modern.
