Leth Retrospective at RIDM, Montreal
The prestigious Canadian documentary film festival, Rencontres Internationale du Documentaire de Montréal, which runs from the 9th-20th of November 2011, will host a big retrospective of Leth's oeuvre. During the course of the festival, a number of Leth's classics will screen, including 'Good and Evil', 'The Five Obstructions', 'The Perfect Human', 'A Sunday in Hell' and his latest work, 'Erotic Man' - just to name a few.
Leth himself will be in Montreal to attend screenings, participate in Q&As, hold masterclasses about his films and methods and not least do a poetry reading in connection to the brand new publication of an English translation of a collection of his poetry. The new publication is called 'Trivial Everyday Things' and is published by Canadian 'Book Thug'.
