I keep telling everyone how beautiful Autonauts of the Cosmoroute is. The romance of it: two artists living for 33 days in a VW hippie van, when their time was runnign out. The art of it: the typewriters, the wine, the poetry, the love, the sex … And the tragedy: this was their last voyage.
But it's hard to get that across unless you've read the book. Or have spent the last year getting to know the characters better than you do yourself! But, this is one of the key elements we are going to build in our film: a sense of magic and wonder. A feeling that you are on the road with the writers. That you feel their pain, their passion, and you feel your heart drop, your hair stand on end, along with them.
This video offers a glimpse at this magical concoction we are preparing for the release of Julio and Carol in 2014, the new Julio Cortazar documentary about his famous, and tragic, last love affair. We made with a steady cam, and never before seen slides from the private collection of Carol Dunlop's son, Stephane Hebert. I just love the mystique. The cigarette smoke. The click of the machine. It's as if you're sitting there with the Cronopio himself, looking at family vacation shots, thinking back the whole time to your greatest love. The animated hand - which is so Cortazarian it hurts. Ahh, it just kills me.
This is what I can't wait to do on a much, much larger scale. And we'll get there -- with your help! We are at 10% of our funding goal, and 32 days remain. Will you put your name on this movie today, and ensure this love story gets told right?
