It's vital that we support these groups. I have my ticket for the virtual film showcase!
In 2019, May Sumak embodied its self-definition as a “traveling film showcase” by dreaming beyond borders and screening films in six different locations between two different countries within the Andean diaspora (Ecuador/USA). This year, due to COVID-19, May Sumak will not be traveling anywhere physically, however, we intend to do so virtually. We strive to continue making May Sumak as accessible as possible for our ayllus in and out of territory through virtual screenings, discussions, workshops, and performances. All this said, this year’s showcase intends to be our most accessible showcase to date! We look forward to continuing with our mission and working to make May Sumak a place for our ayllus to call home.
🎥Program and more details coming soon!
En el 2019, May Sumak floreció en su autodefinición de ser una “muestra de cine itinerante” al soñar más allá de nuestras fronteras y proyectar películas en seis lugares distintos, entre dos países distintos dentro la diáspora andina (Ecuador / EE. UU.). Este año, debido al COVID-19, May Sumak no viajará a ninguna parte físicamente, sin embargo, tenemos la intención de llegar virtualmente. Trabajaremos para seguir el legado de May Sumak y ser lo más accesible posible para nuestros ayllus dentro y fuera del territorio a través de proyecciones, conversatorios, talleres y música virtual. Es decir, ¡este año será nuestra muestra de cine más accesible hasta la fecha! Esperamos continuar con nuestra misión y trabajar para hacer de May Sumak un lugar al que nuestros ayllus puedan seguir considerando como su hogar.
🎥Programa y más detalles pronto!

Colouring The Past
PETULA CLARK - I KNOW A PLACE
The video here is Petula Clark on the Lloyd Thaxton show in 1965. I've sharpened the colour picture and improved the saturation.
Written by Tony Hatch, who wrote Petula Clark's hits "Downtown," "My Love" and "Don't Sleep In The Subway," I KNOW A PLACE was her second single in the US (she had several UK and French hits before getting an American record deal), and was conceived as a follow-up to her first single, "Downtown."
Both songs are set in the city with similar musical elements. It was recorded in 1965 by Petula Clark at the Pye Studios in Marble Arch in a session which featured drummer Bobby Graham and the Breakaways vocal group.
"Warner Bros., they had this great #1 record, they said, 'Come on, we want another one,' recalled Petula in 2013.
"I wasn't writing, Tony was doing all the writing. I was just singing the songs. He came up with 'I Know A Place,' which I thought was a good song. I didn't think it was quite up to the standards of 'Downtown,' but it went in on the wave of 'Downtown,' really."
When this went to #3 in the US, Clark became the first female solo act to chart her first two singles in the top 3 of the Hot 100. Its UK success was more moderate with a No. 17 peak, establishing the mid-60s pattern of Clark generally having more hit impact in the US than in her homeland.
Released as the follow-up to "Downtown", "I Know a Place" became Clark's second consecutive Top Ten hit in the United States, remaining on the charts for twelve weeks.
"No matter what anyone tells you, to make it in the United States is still the dream of every transatlantic performer," said Petula in 1966. "You work for it. Long for it. And I can't tell you how ecstatic I was when 'I Know a Place' was nearly as big a hit as 'Downtown' and the Copacabana Club in New York signed me."
Having much more of a rock and roll beat than its predecessor, "I Know a Place" emulated the theme of "Downtown" by inviting the listener to "just get away where your worries won't find you" to a place "where the music is fine and the lights are always low."
The song includes the lyrics' "a cellar full of noise", a deliberate reference to A Cellarful of Noise, the title of Brian Epstein's autobiography, describing the below-ground Cavern Club in Liverpool where he first discovered the Beatles.
Hello, and a warm welcome to everyone who has joined COLOURING THE PAST.
The page is my attempt to add a little colour to the cheeks of the past. It's not intended to offer anything 'better' than the original black & white footage; just a different take.
Running the page is a one-man operation. I write and research the articles, and edit the videos which involves several hours of work - upscaling, colourising and tweaking in various software.
If you could see fit to make a small donation then I would be genuinely grateful.
Thank you and best wishes, Paul 🙂
