Dear Shaded Viewers,

ARRRGH1 Monstres de Mode opens tomorrow at the Gaite Lyrique and will run until 7 April, today was the press preview and tonight the opening party but from then on, it is for you, the public to enjoy and I am sure that you will love it and if you have children, bring them…maybe not for Bart Hess's amazing films, perhaps a little to strong for the underage but well worth spending some time in that dark room. I'll post a few links later as a teaser to Bart Hess's film.
