  Lenny Kravitz  
  Lenny Kravitz's new album is simply titled Lenny.. Guitars and riffs dominate the tracks, and the songs veer from hard rockers to anthemic ballads to funked-out jams with a bit of psychedelia thrown in. Kravitz, who produced the disc and played all the instruments, says it represents some of his most innovative production work yet. He also confides that the philosophical and emotionally candid lyrics illustrate a newfound comfort with himself.

  Milcho Manchevski, film director  
  Best known for his Oscar-nominated Venice winner BEFORE THE RAIN, Manchevki recently directed DUST. It stars Joseph Fiennes and David Wenham as American Wild West men that end up in early 20th century Macedonia under Turkish Ottoman rule. According to Manchevski, DUST is an "eastern" (as opposed to traditional "westerns.") The film is structured as an unorthodox trilogy of vignettes, which changes time periods and locations for each new story. The fractured plot straddles one century, moving between contemporary New York City, the old Wild West, and the old "Wild East" (Balkans), around the 1903 Macedonian uprising against its Turkish occupiers.
