52-year-old Juan “Coco” Villegas, suddenly loses his job at a gas station, where he had been working for more than two decades. He does not give up and seeks different jobs in the villages of Patagonia and tries to hold on. One day, after a repair job, he gets paid in the strangest way; with a dog! Argentine director Carlos Sorin’s Bombón: El perro tells the story of an extraordinary dog who changes an ordinary man’s life.
In 1962 Philip Corner, one of the most prominent members of the Fluxus movement, caused a great commotion in serious music circles when during a performance entitled Piano Activities he climbed up onto a grand piano and began to kick it while other members of the group attacked it with saws, hammers and all kinds of other implements.
Among the most interesting themes in the oeuvre of Prassinos are cypresses, trees, and Turkish landscapes. The cypress woods in Üsküdar he saw every time he stepped out on the terrace of their house in İstanbul or the trees in Petits Champs must have been strong images of childhood for Prassinos.
