135. MEET THE TRYGGER TWINS

This interview with The Trygger Twins originally appeared in muzicTown online magazine shortly after the release of the Twin’s single, GUN KONTROL.  The music video for the track was directed by Boone Welles who not only happens to be my cousin but is in Tryxxi’s yoga class.

I know Gun Kontrol is a hot-button issue but I think I can say without familial prejudice that Boone has really put her finger on it.

134. THE ACTUAL CRUZ/RUBIO ARTICLE

Actual ArticleMy friends. This is getting intense. A few days after I posted that photo I took of the newspaper article regarding Cruz and Rubio’s sexual past, a regular NY Post reader sent me the actual article.

Here it is in it’s entirety. It is no wonder America is losing faith in government.

133. CRUZ & RUBIO ARE BROS!

Wow, when I saw this headline on the subway yesterday I was even more stunned than I was a few days ago. My hands were shaking as I took the photo. As shocking as this new revelation about Cruz and Rubio is I have to say in some way it makes a lot of things clearer about them both.

128. DOWN IN SHADOWLAND in NYC

DOWN IN SHADOWLAND
TO SCREEN TWICE
IN NYC

Shadowland Poster small

My new film, Down In Shadowland, will screen twice in NYC this month. First will be at The Anthology Film Archives on Nov. 10 at 8pm as part of a retrospective of my films.

“Made over the course of seven years, DOWN IN SHADOWLAND is an impressionistic, haunting portrait of the NYC subway system. Filmed secretly, in the tradition of Walker Evans’s renowned Subway Portraits, SHADOWLAND is at once a vérité portrait of the world beneath New Yorkers’ feet, and an evocative, carefully structured, almost musical filmic composition. Taking the subway as a microcosm of the world at large, it combines the private and the public, the personal and the political.”

The film will screen again on Nov. 14 at The Maysles Documentary Center in Harlem. I’m especially thrilled to have the film screen at the Center. It was founded by Albert Maysles, who with his brother David directed such powerful and evocative documentaries as Grey Gardens, Gimme Shelter and Meet Marlon Brando. Ticket information and directions HERE.

I’ve been working on the film continuously since it screened at the Woodstock Film Festival a year ago. It was just presented at the Vermont International Film Festival as a Special Filmmaker’s Screening.

“If the whole of humanity were marched before our eyes, it might resemble DOWN IN SHADOWLAND, a descent into the subterranean universe of the iconic NYC subway. Told in eight parts, each probing ever more deeply into the human psyche, SHADOWLAND is a profound meditation on the human condition. Bold, masterful and entirely unpredictable with a soundtrack that propels us forward with the velocity of the train itself, SHADOWLAND is a remarkable film that leaves no doubt we are in the hands of a master.” –Barbara Pokras, ACE
