Ringing in 20 weeks until the Stellar Short Film Festival, we’ve picked a film that’s impossible to ignore! Bursting onto the cinema scene in 1994 and going off like whistles at Mardi Gras is the feel-good surprise Aussie hit ‘The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’. This comedy-drama tells the story of three friends (played by Hugo Weaving, Terrance Stamp and Guy Pearce) who travel from Sydney to Alice Springs in their tour bus named ‘Priscilla’, encountering kooky characters along the way, as they prepare to put on a 3-week drag show. With an irresistibly fun soundtrack, it’s no surprise the film became a hugely successful musical – in fact its 10th anniversary Australian tour is launching at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre in January 2018! As well as winning hearts around the world, the film also won an Academy Award for Best Costume Design, and is now cemented as a cult classic. Not bad for “a cock in a frock on a rock”!
#ThrowbackThursday ! @montefarber and I with Terence Stamp, one of cinema's most respected actors, here holding our Enchanted Tarot, and at Nick & Toni’s and in our studio in East Hampton....Of course he is famous as Zod in Superman!
Terence discusses his twin obsessions, acting and mysticism, in his new memoir "The Ocean Fell into the Drop”- just published by @watkinswisdom - thank you, @christopher_wold!)He writes about his spiritual masters, Osho, Krishnamurti and Hazrat Inayat Khan, as well as Sufism and his directors and actors including Fellini, Loach, Pasolini, Olivier, Brando and Redgrave. ⭐️
His brother Chris Stamp was the coolest guy ever, very dear to us, and we adore his wonderful sister-in-law Calixte, one of our closest friends @spiritsoullove (thanks for the adventures and the photos, Calixte!)
