Gary Lucas recently returned from Serbia where he performed at the opening ceremonies of film director Emir Kusturica’s 11th Kustendorf Film Festival (FOTO), accompanying a fragment of the lost 1918 Russian Futurist “Bound By Film”  starring Vladimir Mayakovsky and Lilya Brik, and Rene Clair’s 1924 surrealist classic “Entr’acte”:

He also sat in with Emir Kusturica and the No Smoking Orchestra at their midnightconcert the following evening.
"The 11th Kustendorf Film & Music Festival held in the snowy mountains of western Serbia couldn't have gotten off to a better opening night start in January 2018 than with Gary Lucas on guitar captivating an enthusiastic audience of filmmakers from around the world along with locals who danced with joy and appreciation to Lucas' blend of everything from blues and jazz and beyond!” 
—Andrew Horton, film critic for Cineaste magazine & The University of Oklahoma Professor of Film & Media Studies 
“Thank you for nailing it in the festival…great is all what you have done in Kustendorf.”
  —Emir Kusturica

 The evening included historic video clips and recordings, Van Vliet poetry readings by Bob Holman and Tammy Faye Starlite, and an incendiary performance by Gary's new ensemble of the same name featuring vocalist Nona Hendryx (Labelle), Jesse Krakow on bass,  Jordan Shapiro on keyboards, and Richard Dworkin on drums.
