    "A fast, complex, exhilarating roadster ride through history and time.... Kino is an intoxicating Euro-brew, written with enormous skill and dedication." — Frederick Barthelme

    "Jürgen Fauth's deft mashup of genre and historical period is both a full-throttle literary thriller of ideas and a contemplative examination of film and fascism. Kino is a debut of great intellectual  force."– Teddy Wayne

    "A surprising alternative history. Kino brings the golden age of German cinema to light with loving, sometimes gritty, detail and great precision." – Neal Pollack, author of Jewball.

    "A delirious melange of conspiracy, magic, sex, history, bad behavior, and cinema, Kino is a stellar entertainment, and Jürgen Fauth is a writer of rare, sinister imagination." – Owen King, author of Reenactment

    "A light-hearted romp that leads straight into darkness and back through the shadows on the wall."– Ben Loory, author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day

    "Movie nuts arise! A happy and felicitous debut."– Terese Svoboda

Uncle Stevie

I met Steve in a Grateful Dead forum, looking for tickets for a Jones Beach show in 2003. He had the ticket but needed a ride, so I picked him up in Rego Park on the way. His seats were much better than mine, and during setbreak, he came with someone else’s ticket and stubbed […]

The Sloppy Heads

The Sloppy Heads played in Williamsburg the other night, and I took my brand-new camera for a spin. The Canon T2i takes both stills and HD video. Love it so far. And hey: go download the Sloppy Heads’ EP, First Gasp!

Grossi, Silent Movie Star

I’ve been working on a project involving a fictional family with a secret history in German silent film for several years now — but it wasn’t until a recent trip home that I learned that my great-grandmother acted in movie in or around 1919. So far, research hasn’t turned up any details, but I collected […]

Main Beach

Not much ever happens at Main Beach.

Boring Short Films

If Jim Jarmusch can get away with No Limits, No Control, perhaps you might enjoy my exquisitely dull Flip videos. Hey, it’s all about “pure experience.”  If you like, follow & friend me on Vimeo, YouTube, or Flickr for more.  I’m expecting more exciting subject matter soon. (More posts tagged muckfilm.)

Flip the Chicken

Everybunny Loves Spring

Another herky-jerky time-lapse experiment, this time assembled from about 500 still photos I took on a walk through Astoria. Vimeo’s video compression adds an additional level of strangeness that makes this almost worth watching.

Mir Ist So Nach Dir

Another excitement-free video, cobbled together from footage shot around Berlin-Mitte last September. Next time, I’ll put some more people in it.
