Cities and suburbs, real and imaginary.

old stories are good stories

Black Orpheus (1959) is a fantastic movie.

If you haven't seen it, check it out.

I'm hard at work at stuff like this - reimagining of greek myths - so I'm scouring the wires for anything else that could be a good reference, or tips on what to avoid because it's been done before. Plenty of Orpheus and Eurydice out there - of which Black Orpheus is probably the best - but not much for characters like Arachne, or Persephone, or Ganymede.

Know anything good, drop me a line.
