Impressions de la Haute Mongolie. Hommage a Raymond Roussel (1974-75)

If like me you don't read Catalan or speak French here's the perfect opportunity to put you life on hold for 50 minutes and let the burnt in English subtitles demystify the madness that is Carry On Upper Mongolia. Or if you have a limited attention span, part 1"Hidden Hitler" and part 5 "Catalonian Happening" offer the greatest entertainment value.

It's fun to watch Salvador geeking out about Roussel's homophonic puns or Vermeer's ambient stillness. Makes you realise, despite his genius he is a aesthetic consumer just like us.

Credit for the original translation goes to Colombina Zamponi via UbuWeb . I just used VirtualDub and Vobsub to superimpose the text and edit the video.
