dear james.

i see youıve made this post three times today.

given you are no jack smith fan, this is perhaps irrelevant, but yes it is
the same film promoted during maryıs PERFORMA 05 show, and no, the film was
not shown then, nor has it ever been.

if you donıt like jack smith and didnıt come to maryıs show, why are you so
compelled to poo-poo it?
