The contract that I signed with Soprofilms on 5 October 1982, and will soon expire, obliges me to communicate my conclusions after a period of eighteen months. I reveal them for you here.
The importance of the subject, the relative brevity of the period, the consideration of a horrible assassination that exactly marks in an indelible manner the conditions of French cinematographic production, among other conditions; briefly, this collection of reasons leads me to declare that I believe myself currently unable to propose to Soprofilms a suitable manner of treating the project, "Of Spain."
As for the everyday defrayments that remain due me, I propose to calculate them over an actual period of stays in Spain lasting only 15 months.
Please believe, Dear Floriana, the assurance of my most respectful sentiments.Guy Debord
