Dusty R.I.P.

Dusty 2014

Passed on last Monday – faithful companion for seventeen years. He liked long walks. But he also patiently lay [or slept] through countless films on video and also through the ocassional 16mm.

Among the many were those of Dziga Vertov, Jean Renoir, Orson Welles, Naruse Mikio, Jean-Luc Godard, Jorge Sanjines, Menelik Shabazz, Mani Ratnam and Nuri Bilge Ceylan. And he was familiar with Lilian Gish, Jimmy Stewart, Kathleen Byron, Takamine Hideko, Dirk Bogarde, Isabelle Hubert, Al Pacino, Shahrukh Khan and Emmanuelle Riva.

He also helped on my Dogs on Film talks – though sadly advancing age prevented him sitting in.

Much missed.

    So sorry Keith. I’m also sorry that I never got to meet him in person. What a fine cinephile pedigree he had. And he looks gorgeous in that picture. Take care and see you soon, I hope
