Of this charming POV animal drinkathon, the Southwest Texas Alternative Energy and Sustainable Living Field Laboratory sez:

Everybody loves water in the desert. I was pleasantly surprised during the edit to see that George made an appearance. I know him from all the other rabbits because of the tiny notch in his ear. A burro just happened to come by in time to be included. Ben went against the script and decided to just nudge the bucket. You can lead a steer to water but you can’t make him drink. Note: The swimming bees were rescued.

The surreal sight of an abandoned open air cinema in Egypt’s Sinai Desert.

According to photographer Kaupo Kikkas (helluva name), the story goes that, 13 years ago, a  Parisian film buff in Egypt had a glorious dream.

Raising the necessary capital back in France, he travelled to Cairo where he bought projection equipment, a generator and a tractor to erect the sail-like screen.

On opening night however, the generator was allegedly sabotaged by miffed local authorities. The premiere was cancelled and, to this day, the cinema hasn’t shown a single film.

It must happen. And when it does, let it be Dune.
