Lots of happenings with a perennial PopMatters favorite Curumin. The Brazilian rapper returns Northern climes for a raft of concert appearances (after the jump), including a gig at the Montreal Jazz Festival on July 11. He was also recently featured on National Geographic’s Geo Sessions and we have the videos here.

Plot summary: Werner Herzog directs a remake of the 1992 film by Abel Ferrara. Ferrara isn’t too happy about it either, as he said at Cannes last year, “As far as remakes go, ... I wish these people die in Hell. I hope they’re all in the same streetcar, and it blows up.”
