We are really happy to kick off this site and share with you some fun glimpses of our new Futurist-comedy-thriller ‘That’s Beautiful Frank.’ You can find a description of the film here and for the shorter explanation take a look at our teaser trailer.
Pretty soon we will have more video clips for you to sink your fanged eyes into, so please keep checking back for more.
On this blog we will keep you up to date on screenings, events, and festivals along with breaking news from our cast and the Futurist art scene. If anything pops in your head feel free to give us a shout, and with your permission we would love to add you to our mailing list of upcoming events. Make sure to look for us on facebook, and if you happen to be a user of YouTube or Vimeo we’d love to meet and greet you there as well.
I will leave you with the disclaimer written by the editors of the French paper Le Figaro that prefaced the publication of Marinetti’s Futurist Manifesto in 1909:
“Mr Marinetti, the young Italian and French poet, a remarkable, hot-blooded talent known throughout the Latin countries by virtue of his resounding public appearances . . . is solely responsible for the ideas [expressed in the manifesto], which are singularly audacious and exaggerated to the point of being unjust to certain eminently respectable and – fortunately – generally respected matters. However, we thought it interesting to offer our readers the first edition of this publication, whatever opinion they may form of it.”
AND now…..the barking girls…
