Link: Francois Truffaut’s last interview

(via kottke)

François Truffaut was a french film theorist, critic, and filmmaker. He’s probably one of the most well know of the former categories. If you’re not familiar with his work, but interested in film, one place to start is with Truffaut’s early writings which were later typified as “Auteur Theory”.

Refait from Pied La Biche on Vimeo.

“Refait” is a remake of the football WorldCup match between France and Germany (Seville, Spain, 1982). Shot by Pied La Biche in Villeurbanne (France), every aspect of the fifteen last minutes of the match was carefully reconstructed : players, positions, gestures, intensity, drama etc. It consists in shifting the traditional game area into the urban environment. Each sequence takes place in one or several locations and then the city temporarily becomes the lab for unsual experiments. The soundtrack is made up of the original commentaries mixed with interviews of the audience recorded during the shooting.”

Decided to change it up for this one. Instead of film news and movie news, and the like. I decided to post a roundup of great videos I watched on the internet this month. It may slow loading time a bit, but it should be fairly enjoyable. Thanks for waiting 😉

There’s quite a bit more where that came from, but I imagine this already slowed the sites loading time way down. Enjoy.
