It’s easy to find Teresa Forcades in the crowd at Barcelona’s airport. She’s wearing a nun’s habit.
Sister Forcades is Spain’s most famous living nun. She’s a medical doctor with a master’s degree from Harvard. She’s a feminist who’s been reprimanded by the Vatican for supporting abortion rights. She’s a Benedictine nun in a country where the Catholic Church has historically sided with fascists.
Christopher Mark Sievey (25 August 1955 – 21 June 2010) was an English musician and comedian known for fronting the band The Freshies in the late 1970s and early 1980s and for his comic persona Frank Sidebottom from 1984 onwards.
The 2014 film Frank was largely inspired by the Frank Sidebottom character, telling the story of a young wannabe musician who joins a pop group led by the enigmatic Frank (Michael Fassbender). The film was written by Jon Ronson and Peter Straughan, and was based on Ronson’s experiences playing in Sievey’s Oh Blimey Big Band. Although drawing from Ronson’s memoir, the story is set in contemporary Ireland and America, and the Frank character combines elements of Sievy with Daniel Johnston and Captain Beefheart. -Wikipedia
