Quote From Francesco De Angelis


AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND

NOVEMBER 28, 2002

QUOTE FROM FRANCESCO DE ANGELIS

At the end of today's racing Francesco de Angelis, skipper of Luna Rossa, said: "We knew that today's race was going to be very difficult. We had more wind than the past couple of days and the Swedish boat has always proven to be fast in these conditions. Our feeling at the end of the day is a good one: we took home another point and we fought a good battle downwind when we attacked our competitors, we passed them and put them in a vulnerable position, forcing them into a penalty. I see closer and closer races in the future. We now have new data to work with for further development of our boat and for improvment of our crew who behaved very well today."

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
