Isou - Traité de bave et d'éternitéIsidore Isou, the romanian-born french writer, passed away last July 28th in Paris. Isou, founder of the lettrist movement and author of the Manifeste du cinéma discrépant, which systematized the separation between image and sound in the cinema, had been very ill in the last years of his life.

His most known cinematic work, Traité de bave et d'éternité (1951) has been recently published in the USA by Kino in the DVD compilation Avant-Garde 2: Experimental Cinema 1928-1954 and will be available later this year in a new restored edition by Re:Voir
