Inspirational Coincidences

BY RACHEL MASON
@ VOL 2 ON OCT 16, 2014

Rachel Mason talks, sings, and strums about the place where art and life, or fiction and reality meet... While doing research for a musical performance and rock opera to get inside the mind of a child killer from the 1930's, she made contact with a man who killed and dismembered a boy in Borough Park. The experience profoundly effected her, and inspired her to write an opera incidentally about a coincidence - two men with the same name Hamilton Fish, died a day apart and their deaths were announced on a single front page. One man was a child-killing sadist, the other a politician from a distinguished political family.

Gunnar Rehlin

Gunnar Rehlin is indeed a real -- and renowned -- Swedish film critic, but he was also the star of the short film Gunnar Rehlin - en liten film om att göra någon illa (Gunnar Rehlin - A Short Film About Hurting Somebody), released in 2000. Filmed as a faux episode of American documentary series Insight, it revolved around a group of comedians -- The Killing Gang -- who create an award-winning ad campaign criticizing and lampooning Rehlin. The short set its sights on the advertising industry in general, and in the film we see meaningless ads -- in Swedish, but the taking the world by storm, accusing Rehlin of being boring, a pedophile, and a murderer. Below, a strange clip from a strange film. Rehlin talked about his participation in the short during a presentation at last week's Pecha Kucha Night Gothenburg Vol. 12.
