Memento Mori Cinematic Poem Short Film featuring Alan Watts Directed By Sebastian Linda 2016

Excerpts from Alan Watts “Memento Mori” Lecture 

I have often puzzled and puzzled,
about what it must be like,
to go to sleep and never wake up
to be,
simply not there,
forever and ever.

But we are inclined to have in our mind,
a picture of this
of being shut up in the dark for always and always,
to be kind of buried alive in the blackness

And we think
Ooh this is it
This is the end
And so at death we withdraw
no no no, not that
Not yet
Please!

And you accepted it.
And suddenly something changed
There was a strange feeling that
everything is absolutely clear.
You suddenly see that there isn´t a grain of dust in the whole universe that´s in the wrong place.
The reason we die is to give us the opportunity to understand what live is all about.
Just think
When you opened your eyes on the world, for the first time as a child
How brilliant colors were
What a jewel the sun was.
What marvel the stars.

Memento Mori
Be mindful of death.

“The Waves”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film Of Virginia Woolf Novel Directed By Marta Di Francesco (2016)

“The Waves” is an Cinematic Poem Experimental Short Film of a 1931 Novel by Virginia Woolf Directed by Marta Di Francesco.

Directed by:  Marta Di Francesco

Musical Score by: Cédric Elisabeth
Sound by:  Richard Nathan

Narrated by:  Adele Orcajada

The Waves Cinematic Poem Experimental Short Film On Virginia Woolf Novel Directed by Marta Di Francesco

“The piece is inspired by and quotes lines from Virginia Woolf’s “The Waves” (1931).

The film has been created using DepthKit, an open source toolkit together with an automated process to add generative textures to each individual frame.

I am interested in the implication of the digital process on identity and its fragmentation, exploring and questioning it through digital bleed and time displacement, and especially through the sculptural quality of time in Kinect 3D aesthetics.

The Waves by Virginia Woolf is the inspiration for this piece due to its theme of identity. It is a poetic novel that revolves around the theme of identity’s continuous flow, its ‘stream of consciousness’, its inner dialogues and multiple conversational syntax. It felt relevant to me in this moment in my life, in a time of uncertainty that leaves us all looking for our identity, weaving it in an effort to create solidity and balance, and escape the insecurity of the void. The process of sewing it together is a search for a feeling of stability, which it is inevitably temporary, like the shimmering crest of the waves in the sun.”

The Waves Cinematic Poem Experimental Short Film On Virginia Woolf Novel Directed by Marta Di Francesco in 2016

Excerpts from “The Waves” by Virginia Woolf (1931)

“I do not know myself sometimes, or how to measure and name and count the grains that make me what I am.

The waves broke and spread their waters swiftly over the shore. One after another they massed themselves and fell; the spray tossed itself back with the energy of their fall. The waves were steeped deep-blue save for a pattern of diamond-pointed light on their backs which rippled as the backs of great horses ripple with muscles as they move. The waves fell; withdrew and fell again, like the thud of a great beast stamping.”

“Dandelion” by Aurora Ovan

Hey, you. Let me talk to you about something: one day, you will die.
Shh, don’t be afraid… You will be the Earth, you will be the Universe, again.
Your son will grab your old hand, dried as an autumn leaf, your brain will search for some answers, as a bottle that floats in the sea.
But let me ask you something: are you living, now?

Shh, listen.
Your heart. Have you ever touched its beating?
Have you ever listened to its steps?
Listened. Listened to the beat of your lover. Listened to the laugh of the creatures. Listened to the words of your planet.
Shh…
You are alive.

Shh… Feel this cold ground.
There will be Sun on these blades of grass, there will be clouds during the flight of the seagulls.
You’ll have to touch this moment with peace.
Shh… Respect your sensitivity.
You are alive.

So, run. Run through the drops of the rain. If you’ll get wet, you will dry.
Give your strongest petals to the ones who fear the blossom.
Endorse the thin cortex of the ones who pretend to be oaks.
Love.
Love the exitence of all the cells.

Shh… Let me remind you something: one day, you will die.
Your time will have passed away, as a dandelion in a blow, your mind will read the pages, writing your signature at the end.

But let me ask you something: are you living, now?

All the Way Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Marcus Sies and Florian Nick

Poem by: Florian Nick

Alone we strive for that feeling,
for that one moment, when we make the rules.
We never listened to the echoes and moans
of those scared to live, afraid to fall.

Instead we opened wide our eyes,
to light the darkness within,
staring into the distance to discover,
places never seen.

Not a finger pointing at you,
not a person telling you what to do.
Why are you even doing this?

This life has grown from our freedom,
our own conviction.
It’s that spirit, our hope and resilience,
that melts away our fears and makes us who we are.

We take on the challenge,
and fight through the elements.
Feeling the presence of pain and life,
we sharpen our senses and strengthen our drive.

Despite all the excuses, the legions of spears,
despite those voices only we can hear.
Beyond our range but within our reach,
we keep on moving to the echo of our breath.

We wander through the ages,
through the lands of our devotion,
chasing dreams, rising fast,
carving a path between the dust and the ashes of our past.

This force, this moment,
this world all our own.

Fear Of The Unknown Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Lex Schmeetz and Ruben Wiltink

Poem by: Edelweiss D.

We always wonder about the unknown
We think about it constantly
Asking ourselves if we are ready
Ready to face the unknown
That could spell our destiny

We always have this fear
Fear of the unknown and so it seem
But life is full of surprises
We just don’t know what will happen next

Sometimes we think we know
Or we think we’re sure
But we can never know or be sure
Because life is unpredictable
And that’s what makes it worth living for

Rotterdam-based director Charlene van Kasteren talks about Untie, a film she co-directed with Dutch filmmaker Guust Mulder, about a man trying to recall his memories by writing them down:

“Guust and I were planning a sabbatical to China and Indonesia. As filmmakers we always have the urge to shoot something. To simply ‘shoot anything’ is too random, so we ended up with a theme linked to the song “Ne Me Quitte Pas” by Belgian singer Jacques Brel. Every shot we took had to be related to this feeling.

“Slowly we found out what story our sabbatical wanted to tell: the story of forgetting memories and holding onto life”

Production Company:  District 7 Media

China-A Prisma Tale Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film Directed by Drew Geraci

“A recent journey to China yielded fantastic imagery that was yearning to be used. We decided that we would take the highly popular Prisma App to the next level and re-shoot an entire time-lapse video using the app itself. After more than 80 hours of post production and 2500 individual frames we were able to complete this tedious project and hand stitch it all together. The result is an immersive experience that paints a completely different picture from reality.”
