Capone goes deep talking with IMPERIUM writer-director Daniel Ragussis

Capone goes deep talking with IMPERIUM writer-director Daniel Ragussis

Read the full article on AICN

Hey everyone. Capone in Chicago here. Writer-director Daniel Ragussis has long been fascinated with the evil that men do. From his devastating short HABER, about the World War I-era chemist who invented Zyklon B, the world’s first chemical weapon of mass destruction, to his first features film, IMPERIUM, concerning the very real and growing existence of radical white supremacy, domestic terror groups that politicians seem to be afraid to call out by name. The film is based on the experiences of undercover FBI agent Michael German (renamed Nate Foster and played by Daniel Radcliffe), who worked his way up the ranks of one such group. IMPERIUM is both a wake-up call to the rest of America and a sickening education about the world of organized hate. Above all things, the film feels scarily authentic, with a staggering level of detail and knowledge that I’ve never seen outside of documentaries on the subject. I had a chance to chat with Ragussis recently about the film, which is in limited release currently. With that, enjoy my talk with filmmaker Daniel Ragussis… Daniel Ragussis: Hi, Steve. Capone: Hi, Daniel. How are you? DR: Good. How are you? Capone: Excellent. I know that you made a short film a while back about a world-famous chemist who invented Zyklon B, which was used by the Nazis during World War II. And now you’ve jumped ahead to modern-day neo-Nazis. What is the fixation with these groups? DR: HABER

Tiger Beer Turned Air Pollution Into Ink, and Had Artists Try It Out

Imagine grabbing a tube of paint, dipping your brush in the black goop and gliding the brush across a canvas. Pretty normal, right? Now image that black goop is made entirely of air pollution emitted from vehicles across Asia, and you can actually use that polluted air to create a masterpiece.

Tiger Beer, working alongside Marcel Sydney and MIT spinoff Graviky Labs, did just that, creating the first line of ink made from air pollution. The brand created 150 liters (roughly 40 gallons) of Tiger Air-Ink in pens, markers and spray cans so that different types of artists could experiment with it.

Hiller, who died this week at 92, made some outstanding films over his career – some against his better judgment – but his philosophy about filmmaking ran counter to that of today’s young auteurs.
Hiller was thoughtful and well…
