“The Hound of Heaven” by Francis Thompson (1893)

I fled Him down the nights and down the days
I fled Him down the arches of the years
I fled Him down the labyrinthine ways
Of my own mind, and in the midst of tears
I hid from him, and under running laughter.
Up vistaed hopes I sped and shot precipitated
Adown titanic glooms of chasme d hears
From those strong feet that followed, followed after
But with unhurrying chase and unperturbe d pace,
Deliberate speed, majestic instancy,
They beat, and a Voice beat,
More instant than the feet:
All things betray thee who betrayest me.I pleaded, outlaw–wise by many a hearted casement,
curtained red, trellised with inter-twining charities,
For though I knew His love who followe d,
Yet was I sore adread, lest having Him,
I should have nought beside.
But if one little casement parted wide,
The gust of his approach would clash it to.
Fear wist not to evade as Love wist to pursue.
Across the margent of the world I fled,
And troubled the gold gateways of the stars,
Smiting for shelter on their clange d bars,
Fretted to dulcet jars and silvern chatter
The pale ports of the moon.

“Avaritia”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film Trailer By Walid Salhab (2015)

“Avaritia” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film Trailer Directed By Walid Salhab.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Walid Salhab

Music by: Jennifer Austin
Produced by: Rosalynn Campbell
Co-Produced by: Walid Salhab and Robert Welsh
Actors: Robert Welsh, Sarah Elizabeth Mills and Amy Sawyers
Visual Effects by: Greg McGraw
Animation: Liisa Ahonen, Carina Campbell-Welsh and Michael Korzonek


” ‘Avaritia’ is a homage to the classic silent movies of the 1920.  It tells the story of a powerful man trapped in a world of his own choosing. Obsessed by money he has been corrupted by the banking institutions he works for. He is alone and without love, but one day he meets the girl he chooses to be his companion…

A unique blend of stop-motion and live action, ‘Avaritia’ is made up of over 9,000 individual photographs to form a haunting and surreal, but ultimately beautiful depiction of love and greed. Filmed over a two year period and set to a beautiful piano score by composer, Jennifer Austin, ‘Avaritia’ is like nothing you have seen before.

The film is a metaphor for the two opposing worlds of Capitalism and Commercialism.  It shows how these institutions cannot exist together as one entity, but as a couple they need each other to survive.”

Heart Of A Dog Cinematic Poem Short Film Trailer Written and Directed by Laurie Anderson 2015

“Musician/performance artist Laurie Anderson has created a remarkable new film: a wry, wondrous and haunting cinematic journey through love, death and language. Centering on her beloved rat terrier Lolabelle, who died in 2011, Anderson composes a personal essay weaving together childhood memories, philosophical musings on data collection, contemporary surveillance culture and the Buddhist conception of the afterlife, as well as heartfelt tributes to the artists and thinkers who inspire her. Fusing her own witty narration with original violin compositions, hand-drawn animation and artwork, she creates a hypnotic collage of visual language out of her life and art, examining how stories are constructed and told, and how we use them to make sense of our lives.”

“See the sport of surfing as it’s never been captured before in John Florence and Blake Vincent Kueny’s second signature release, in association with award-winning film studio, Brain Farm. The first surf film shot entirely in 4K, View From a Blue Moon follows the world’s most dynamic surfer John Florence and his closest friends from his home on the North Shore of Oahu to his favorite surfing destinations around the globe. From the dreamy blue perfection of the South Pacific to the darkest uncharted waters of Africa (and everywhere in between), Florence faces a broad spectrum of emotions as he continues to seal his legacy as one of the most gifted surfers ever. And while the young Hawaiian is pulled in increasingly different directions, there is no form of pressure that will keep him from his ultimate goal — to redefine what is possible in the ocean.”

Into these most inhospitable of lands, a handful of drifters emerge from the whiteout, ready to cast their lot on forsaken peaks both merciless and magnificent. Venturing beyond the frontiers of most mountain films, Solitaire is backcountry skiing forged in the tradition of Western cinema. Born in the spires of Argentina’s legendary Las Lenas, a lonely two-year journey begins through an abandoned world, wandering the length of a continent from Peru’s Cordillera Blanca to Chilean Patagonia.
Lost in the winds of snowbound badlands and the blizzards of primordial forests; seen from a horse’s saddle and a paraglider’s wings; ridden on ski and board and telemark…
Solitaire fuses western-inspired tales of backcountry gambles into landscapes never before visited on film.
