LA FUGA, Spring 2008

My friend Milenko Skoknik is a very busy fellow. Along with (allegedly) making a film for his Masters Program at San Francisco State, he's been helping out on a film down in Los Angeles, acting in a film in Puerto Rico, and falling in love with a young woman in Manhattan. If Miklós Rózsa were alive he'd be the likely candidate to score all this epic drama.

As if that isn't enough, he's recently contributed
an interview with Manda Bala's Jason Kohn to the most current issue of the Chilean forum La Fuga ("The Escape"), which likewise features a sidebar on film theory, additional interviews with Jonathan Rosenbaum and Jean-Louis Comolli, plus essays on the "genre snatching" of The Invasion, a report from the set of Alicia Scheron's latest film Turistas (not to be confused with recent torture porn), the "poetic contamination" of Kiyoshi Kurosawa, four notes for Kaurismäki and much much more, all in Spanish of course.
