Ready For The Final Cut Of
Maleficarum Monxa Mala
Ready For The Final Cut
After a highly successful, promising and sentimental tour in the Old Continent, Jac returned home eager and ready for the task of finishing Maleficarum Monxa Mala. The work will take at least two weeks, I expect that I will be announcing the release date of the film by next week.
The past two weeks Jac spent time in Zürich, Strasbourg, Paris and a quaint village called Le Cotroy, where Joan of Arc was held prisoner in the town’s castle for a month before being sold to the English and taken, by foot, to the shores of Normandy. The castle was destroyed in 1647. The people of Le Crotoy erected a monument to the young martyr.
A lot of that time was also spent in planes, trains, buses and automobiles. A journey that had him meet me in Zurich, Carmen (Camille) in Paris, Veronique in Strasbourg. The meeting that had the most emotional charge was the one in Paris, with Carmen. They hadn’t seen each other since her short visit to La Paz back in 2006 or so. And because of her recent health problems, Jac was very tense. The encounter was extremely pleasant, they had a good time, even given the circumstances. He learned a lot more about her condition and now he awaits for more news.
The most emotional meeting was the one in Paris, with Carmen. They hadn’t seen each other since her short visit to La Paz back in 2006 or so, and because of her recent health problems, Jac was very tense and extremely worried. The encounter brought some relief to him and it was incredibly pleasant, they had a good time walking the streets of Paris, sharing moments with some great French wine, baquettes and cheese. Jac learned a lot more about Carmen’s condition, which is serious but treatable and now he awaits for more news from her, if I’m not mistaken, Carmen is having surgery this week.
Jac will begin the Final Cut of the film this week, after getting his act together. He had some urgent Accounting and Management work to do as well as get updated in what needs to be done in the home and work fronts. He’s getting into the proper frame of mind now. I should have some good news about how the final part of the film is going by the end of the week.
Jac had some inspirational moments during those long train and bus rides and he’s thinking of shooting a film similar to Mila À La Croix with one of the members of the Maleficarum Monxa Mala cast. He has a great title for this new quick movie, which, if it happens, I’ll reveal it. He’s having discussions with the potential damsel in extreme peril this week.

We were very thrilled and excited that Amy was inducted to the GIMP Hall of Fame, deservingly so, and I have a lot to say about that and about Amy. I’ll do it in my next post. Amy visited the GIMP recently and left a nice message which I repeat here:
Hi All, Thank you so much for the lovely, amazing comments! I am so honored to be added to the GIMP Hall of Fame! And just before the anticipated sequel to Maleficarum is released…
The photo I included is me with Dyanne Thorne and Howard Maurer, of “Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS” fame, taken at a film festival in 2013. Who knew that, six years later, she and I would be joining the Hall of Fame on the very same day?!
I am so grateful to this forum, Ralphus, and the amazing people who make this forum what it is. And I am happy that I could be of service to the forum when it was in web crisis. May the GIMP go on for many years to come!
