LA ULTIMA PELICULA

DIRECTOR: Raya Martin, Mark Peranson - MEXICO

“Film and digital, documentary and fiction all do battle as an egomaniacal director journeys to the Yucatán to prepare for his (the?) last movie to be shot on celluloid, just as the Mayan apocalypse threatens to bring forth the end of the world—and cinema. Schizophrenic in the best ways possible, this madcap-experimental-comedy-fever-dream is alternately hilarious, poetic, and beautiful. Inspired by Dennis Hopper’s infamous The Last Movie (1971), as well as the documentary shot during its editing on Hopper’s ranch, The American Dreamer, the film is a loving tribute to a great American artist—and to that sacred material known as celluloid—and yet it bravely looks ahead to new possibilities in the ever-changing landscape of the seventh art. This may be the last movie, but it’s the first of its kind.”—Vancouver International Film Festival. (88 mins.)

Filmography: Martin: Autohystoria (07), Independencia (09); Peranson: Waiting for Sancho (08).
