Improvisational Cinema of Rashidi and Devereaux

After Ten Years in the Sun, Trailers and Indwell Extinction of Hawks in Remoteness (I can't stress enough how I love this title!), I review six features that resulted from the collaboration between "the tireless experimenter Rouzbeh Rashidi and the London-based thespian and theorist James Devereaux", as I note in the article linked below. These hypnotic, challenging, genre-defying, even mind-opening works provide an insightful look into the world of minimalist (read: micro-budget) filmmaking or more precisely, into the creative process which most of the time involves only a director, an actor and a camera, in addition to their well-rounded improvisational skills.
