No Braxton. No Breton. And we're told that the voice is Cherry himself. Dunno…
Boy, did we ever get it wrong. Let's start over: A film of Don Cherry in Paris, 1967. Still great: ubu.com/film/cherry_de… #misinformation
Anthony Braxton contacted Ubu to let us know that he, in fact, is *not* reading that Breton poem in the Cherry film. Anyone know who is?

1000 done; 2000 to go.
We've converted and re-coded over 1000 films for #mobilemedia. Pretty much A-J are done. Bits and pieces are still missing. Work continues.
All Ubu's films are in the process of being converted for #mobilemedia, but #Firefox still won't read #MP4, so it has a #Flash fallback.
