'Arthur Rimbaud In Verdun' - A fiction constructed out of interest as to the possible outcome, places the French poet Arthur Rimbaud (who died in 1891) at the historic and tragic battle of Verdun in 1916. The idea being that Penny found something to be explored in the possibilities of the young vagabond and his perception of such drastic events.
‘Shut the F++k Up’ is a ‘lockdown meditation’ movie created by Penny Rimbaud. In his own words, the piece is ‘a journey to the nowhere that is our true home, where the universal devours the individual and the light shines yet creates no shadow. In short, nothing is quite what it seems to be.’ Available as a free download
'How?' is a question that seems doubly pertinent in our pandemic planet. 'How?' is Penny Rimbaud's answer; a scream of defiance against rampant capitalism and the 'buy now, live later' culture that it has spawned. But hey, normal? The show must go on, and it is our own horrific indifference which will allow it to do so. Kick back.
