“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.

The Sun Within Cinematic Poem Short Film In Portugal Directed By Mathieu Le Lay 2018

“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.

Sonja Cinematic Poem Documentary Short Film Directed By Maroš Milčík (2018)

“Sonja is a poetic portrayal of the story of the sightless artist Sona Zeliskova, who despite adverse fate found her life journey in art and ceramics

The film experiments with audio-visual components to recount Sona’s unique story. Combining a documentary, narrative and poetic approach, this short film attempts to depict the real-life story via poetic language.

We used special infrared technology, in order to achieve a surrealistic black-and-white visual. The unique picture thus emerged purely in-camera without the use of post-production.

Sonja Cinematic Poem Documentary Short Film Directed By Maroš Milčík (2018)

Sona carries a one-of-a-kind story of a lifetime struggle, overcoming obstacles while flourishing her love for art. At the age of 13, she was diagnosed with diabetes. At 26, right by the birth of her son, she completely lost her sight. At age of 39, nevertheless, she has found her life purpose and passion for ceramics and became a successful artist. Today, Sonia runs ceramics courses, lectures at conferences and has become a life inspiration for many others.”

Ethos Cinematic Poem Aerial Short Film Directed by Jay Worsley 2018

Excerpts from “True Love” by Robert Penn Warren

In silence the heart raves. It utters words
Meaningless, that never had
A meaning. I was ten, skinny, red-headed,

Freckled. In a big black Buick,
Driven by a big grown boy, with a necktie, she sat
In front of the drugstore, sipping something

Through a straw. There is nothing like
Beauty. It stops your heart. It
Thickens your blood. It stops your breath…

Ethos Cinematic Poem Aerial Short Film Directed by Jay Worsley 2018

Excerpts from “Song” by Allen Ginsberg

The weight of the world
is love.
Under the burden
of solitude,
under the burden
of dissatisfaction

the weight,
the weight we carry
is love.

Who can deny?
In dreams
it touches
the body,
in thought
constructs
a miracle,
in imagination
anguishes
till born
in human–
looks out of the heart
burning with purity–
for the burden of life
is love,

Excerpt from “The Waves” by Boris Pasternak

We were in Georgia. You can get this land 
If hell is multiplied by paradise, 
Bare indigence by tenderness, and if 
A hothouse serves as pedestal for ice.

And then you’ll know what subtle doses of 
Success and labor, duty, mountain air 
Make the right mixture with the earth and sky 
For man to be the way we found him there.

“A few months ago, a friend and I went to discover Morocco for a personal project. It was an amazing experience for both of us, and some of the witnessed places were breathtaking. I’m pretty sure that I’ll be back sooner or later.

So, with some of the images that we recorded, I made this little tribute to Mr. Charles Bukowski and his poem ‘The Laughing Heart’. And, of course, to my colleague Izhan, who’s being a fellow companion these last couple of years. For more adventures like this!”

The Laughing Heart Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed byNacho Jáuregui 2017

“The Laughing Heart” by Charles Bukowski

your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is a light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you.
