Sonnet 116 Cinematic Poem Short Film For Vogue Italia Directed by Federico Mazzarisi (2019)

“Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare”

Let me not to the marriage of true minds 
Admit impediments. Love is not love 
Which alters when it alteration finds, 
Or bends with the remover to remove. 
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark 
That looks on tempests and is never shaken; 
It is the star to every wand’ring bark, 
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken. 
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks 
Within his bending sickle’s compass come; 
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, 
But bears it out even to the edge of doom. 
If this be error and upon me prov’d, 
I never writ, nor no man ever lov’d.

“Sailing peacefully across the river Li in Guilin, Chia,
men fished using trained cormorants since 960 AD.

Fishing with these birds in an ancient tradition which
was practiced in a handful of countries over thousands
of years.

Cormorant Fishermen Cinematic Poem Short Film In China Directed By Alexander Alexandrov (2019)

Today the method (no longer sustainable) is a decaying
virtue. Most of the Li River is closed to fishing.

The primary image on the reverse side of the 20 Yuan note
is a view of a fisherman on his bamboo raft floating down
the Li River through the spectacular Karst mountains.”

Cormorant Fishermen Cinematic Poem Short Film In China Directed By Alexander Alexandrov (2019)

At darkness hour, every dawn
I took the light and you aboard

In our world, of force and skill
the silent bond that we both built

with bare purpose to provide
yet catching beauty with our eyes

not every turn the river made
I knew, yet didn’t hesitate

and through these moments flashing by
I felt the current of our time

With every chance we caught the stream
It felt as if I lived the dream
and marked with screaming scars of joy
the flow of passing silent void

And when the times took you away
I lived and saw up to the days
Of world so vast to comprehend
Of changing streams I could not sail

i thought as generations passed
if they relate to one of us

some other place, from dusk to dawn
the paths we cross, to rise and fall

to catch the moment of the day
and share it with you to stay.

“Imaginary Bird”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed By Alex Soloviev (2018)

“Imaginary Bird” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film in Rome Featuring Poet Charles Bukowski Directed By Alex Soloviev.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Alex Soloviev

Music by Jimmy Svensson / Artlist

Poem Read by: Tom O’Bedlam

“This poem is quite personal. It took much time to find way to visualize it. Dark and light parts of this video have a very special meaning.

We don our masks and our everyday armor, afraid of being found out. Afraid of being taken less seriously, as if happiness were a stain in our otherwise pristine, unbreakable facade. We hide our real selves away – our weak points and vulnerabilities. Until the time we can finally be ourselves again. Until we can finally breathe again. When no one else is looking.

The fact that from around a million to 5 millions of starlings choose the city of Rome as their wintering ground might appear as a blessing or just inspiration when you observe it. It remains one of the world’s greatest natural phenomena.”

“Bluebird” by Charles Bukowski

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I’m not going
to let anybody see
you.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I pour whiskey on him and inhale
cigarette smoke
and the whores and the bartenders
and the grocery clerks
never know that
he’s
in there.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say,
stay down, do you want to mess
me up?
you want to screw up the
works?
you want to blow my book sales in
Europe?

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too clever, I only let him out
at night sometimes
when everybody’s asleep.
I say, I know that you’re there,
so don’t be
sad.

then I put him back,
but he’s singing a little
in there, I haven’t quite let him
die
and we sleep together like
that
with our
secret pact
and it’s nice enough to
make a man
weep, but I don’t
weep, do
you?

Beyond Ordinary Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Goran Jovic 2018

Actress: Diana Loos

“What draws us into the desert is the search for something intimate in the remote.” There might be times when people think that travelling ain’t for them. It requires a lot of organization with a pinch of spontaneity (or two pinches or as you like it), it hides its attraction in a lot of unexpected turns and sometimes even leads to unknown whereabouts but, finally, it moves you deeply and you fall in love with it irrevocably. There might be times when people fail to find will and determination to do something new or take a new step into the unknown. Nonetheless, you always should keep in mind that tomorrow is a new day. If you are ever at the crossroads, dare to do more than just sleeping on it, go to the desert(s), listen to its silence, take a deep breath and everything will appear to you as it is. There might be times when you doubt yourself, but there are answers to all your questions – just don’t be too timid to ask for them.”

Beyond Ordinary Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Goran Jovic 2018

Where is the beginning of this
Where is the end
Why are you here
What is your life about anyway.

Try to look deep inside and ask yourself
Who are you?
What is it you are seeking for?

“Edge of the Sea” by Marlin Ray

Soft dust wraps us in its rough embrace, 
sea salt air dense with water. 
Sunrise sea change 
embraces the blue
dirt gives from the earth
soft kelp sleeve
and urchin wrap. 
crayfish covering 
and grey waves. 
For these I sing my song. 
Seaweed circus
of youthful shouts 
bottomless marine world
of chance and glee. 
The quiet line of breaking ocean, 
for these I sing my song. 
Hills slide to the edge of the sea 
always fitting perfectly. 
Everywhere the colors shout and twist 
making joy and rain. 
for these we sing our song.

“Build Me A Cottage” by Fernando Pessoa

Build me a cottage deep
In a forest, a simple, silent home, 
        Like a breath in a sleep,
Where all wish may be never to roam
And a pleasure all smallness may keep.
 
        A palace high then build,
With confusion of lights and of rooms, 
        A strange sense to yield,
Whither my desire from the cottage’s glooms
May go, to return, unfulfilled.
 
        Then dig me a grave,
That what cottage nor palace can give 
        I at length may have,
That the weariness of all ways to live
May cease like the last of a wave.

“Horizonte” by Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935)

Oh ocean preceding us, your fears
Had coral and beaches and forests to them.
Were the night and fog unveiled,
The past’s storms and mystery,
The Afar would blossom, and the starlit South
Shine resplendent on the ship of initiation.

Austere line of the distant coast
Upon the ship’s approach, the slope of the land rises
In trees with nothing
Far about them;
Closer by, the earth opens up in sounds and colours

And upon landing there are birds and flowers
Where from afar there was only an abstract line.
The dream is to see the invisibile forms
Of imprecise distances, and, with sensitive
Movements of hope and will,
To seek out in the cold line of the horizon
The tree, the beach, the flower, the bird, the fountain
The much-deserved caresses of Truth.
