As this issue goes on-line in this month of May, it would be remiss not to mention the 40th Anniversary of another seminal month of May long gone. We refer, of course, to the so-called ‘events’ of May 1968 in France that have left an indelible mark on film history. Rather than offer anything specific about those events, now frozen in time, we pay homage to a film that still breathes the air of a true revolutionary spirit in all its manifold forms: sexual, political, existential. Sweet Movie: we need such movies more than ever.
Our thanks to Dušan Makavejev, Bojana Marijan and all our contributors.
Hope you enjoy the Issue.
