Short history of Herqueville

I felt that the work I did on Herqueville last night was a turning point in the development of the film. First, a little background information about this project which has been going on and off for more than two years. It started when I met with my friends Serge Meurant and Michelle Corbisier, respectively poet and visual artist, in Brussels three years ago. A long time ago, I had a close collaboration with Serge for the film Etienne et Sara which basically was the result of our first encounter in 1983. We remained in contact for all those years but without any significant common work. That evening, they showed me poems by Serge and prints by Michelle that were inspired by their visit at Herqueville, at La Hague peninsula in Normandy in France.

My site was finally put on line last night. Up to now there was only a static version of it with just a curiculum vitae that I could not edit myself. I wrote a blog that remained unpublished while I was in Lebanon in March and April. This travel was special enough to find the energy to write about what was going on. But when I was back home, it seemed pointless to continue writing for an unpublished blog. Now is the day where it really starts. I should first briefly summarize what happened since the last entry. The following event was the performance at the San Francisco International Film Festival. This was quite important because it was the first major film festival that booked us and also because we were planed to perform in the SFMOMA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art) auditorium which is a prestigious venue. Of course we hope that other film festivals and other museum of modern art will book us.
