Athol Fugard discussion / Valley Song in NY
« Last post by Iain Fisher on March 02, 2024, 07:51:10 PM »
Athol Fugard's Valley Song is on at the Steamer No. 10 Theatre, Albany, NY from 22-24 March 2024.

"A poor yet dignified war veteran who is devoted to his vegetable furrows in a remote South African province, Buks is anxious to shield his dreamy, restless granddaughter Veronica from temptations beyond the valley. She is equally anxious to be a singer in faraway Johannesburg. Her self-made songs brim with the longings of youth, seeking the courage to embrace the future while her grandfather searches for the wisdom to let go of the past".

The director is Jean-Remy Monnay.

Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Re: Music Videos by Jon Sorensen

Hi Jon,

Thanks for all these.  I have watched a few of the videos, all good stuff, music and stunning imagery.  I liked the Edinburgh reference, I always though of Edinburgh as a city of various levels.

Clouds of Glory is better than my copy.  I was at the BFI filming (Melvyn Bragg was there).  Good seeing it on a large screen and an even better copy but still still with some damaged film.  The  BFI said their copy was very fragile, but is the best copy still around.
