I can't really put into words, tonight, how desperately sad I am to discover that Lina Romay died last week. But one thing I can say: many, many years from now, when cinéastes, freaks, perverse intellectuals, outcasts, drop-outs, dykes, queers and lovers of strange aesthetic flavours discuss women of the cinema, Lina Romay (Rosa Maria Almirall) will be celebrated, and discussed, and admired. She's an immortal of the cinema; of this I have no doubt. As long as there are lovers of cinema, Lina will remain; a force in the world. That's just a fact.
