"Park City, Utah - January 22, 2010- William S. Burroughs: A Man Within is finally here!  I would like to invite you to come. It will premiere opening night of the festival. There will also be a follow up screening at Slamdance on January 27th. Visit the Film festival site at  It is premiering a day after Gus Van Sant / Rob Epsteins' HOWL down the street at Sundance
- If you can make it out, let me know and I will make sure you get in. Otherwise it should screen in your area soon

Not to be tacky, and I hate doing this, but...
We need your help!
We are so close to making this happen, (we will hopefully sell the film soon) but until then, we don't have enough money to make it through the festival. Can you help us out? Check out our Kickstarter profile. There are some great benefits for giving and great info:
Please please just check it out-- If for nothing else, check out who is in the film.
 Donations are safe and through Amazon payments.
 If you can't help out financially, I completely understand (we would love you to pass the link on, tweet or blog about it). We have a goal of $3,000... If we don't make that then we don't get any of the pledged money. Check it out.. get a free DVD.. or Assistant Producer credit.

If you make a pledge (or have a question)
Email me at
I am not going to send out another email about this because I don't want to bug you, so please take this opportunity.

This film has been a success thanks to the hard work of my film team and all of William Burroughs' great friends who have donated their time, photographs, footage, music, art work, connections, and general support.

 We are so close. We just need a final push.

I also want to thank the Burroughs Estate and Ginsberg Trust for their support.

I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the opportunity to help preserve the legacy of this culturally important figure and all the interesting and wonderful people he continues to influence.

Yours," Yony

"SOUVENIR DU FUTUR / VOLUME UN / 2009-2060 (55')
A radio essay byf Ramuntcho Matta 
Realization Lionel Quantin
In 2060 Ramuntcho Matta is hundred years old and sends us a message to the past
He shares with us his impressions and sends us musics from that time, and then what ?
This is the first chapter, of a life rich in meetings
It begins with the end
Good appetite
Here no sounds of archives
It will be for the next time
I took the means of the edge
A director, a sound recordist, a mixer and a place
One Ramuntcho, his voice, objects more or less sound and his memory
We made the journey in a neglected castle
The castle of the memory
There the acoustics is natural

The world of tomorrow will have no archives, no past
Tomorrow it is today
As usual

Ramuntcho Matta was born in 1960 in Neuilly on the Seine. He lives and works in Paris. Composer, plastician  consultant in emotional arborescence, he teaches doubt at the graduate school of Creation. "
I have a recording of the program, for those who want to listen to it.
