Cinema in transit - failed translation effort

Steve Erickson has found the existence of an unpublished attempt to translate Daney in English:

"Thanks to the graciousness of editor Paul Willemen, I've finally managed to get a copy of the manuscript for Daney's CINEMA IN TRANSIT, an unpublished English-language anthology acquired by the British Film Institute in 1994."

The scope of the effort is a great selection of texts from Devant la recrudescence des vols de sacs à mains and Ciné Journal (articles written for Libération between 1981 and 1991) but the quality of the translation is very poor and, until someone puts some significant re-work, it is probably best that this document is not easily available.

This blog's advice is to ignore this.
