For The Light And Darkness Cinematic Visual Poem Short Film Directed by Patryk Kizny 2017

“For The Light And Darkness is a visual story loosely inspired by the ancient Manichean idea of a primeval conflict between the spiritual world of light and material world of darkness.

“Manichaeism taught an elaborate dualistic cosmology describing the struggle between a good, spiritual world of light, and an evil, material world of darkness. Through an ongoing process that takes place in human history, light is gradually removed from the world of matter and returned to the world of light, whence it came. Its beliefs were based on local Mesopotamian gnostic and religious movements. [Wikipedia]”

In director’s perspective, all events of the world are part of the eternal cycle of changes between powers of light and darkness. The primary visual layer depicts main characters – an ethereal dancer (Light) and a mighty shaman (Darkness) as they trade the powers. The secondary layer features powerful and rich symbolic imagery to illustrate the transitions of power.”

“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.”

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.”

“The first exoplanet was discovered in 1992 by Prof. Aleksander Wolszczan.

Until today, we have confirmed existence of over 2000 planets in our galaxy. One in five Sun-like stars have an Earth-like planet in its habitable zone so there’s about 11 billion Earth-like planets in our galaxy.

Whatever you imagined, might take place on one of them.

Light combines imagery of an alien planet with dance performance interwoven in a minimalistic narrative form to convey the notion of light as a primary origin of all life in the Universe.”

Excerpt from “The Waste Land” by T.S. Eliot

“Unreal City,
Under the brown fog of a winter dawn,
A crowd flowed over London Bridge, so many,
I had not thought death had undone so many.
Sighs, short and infrequent, were exhaled,
And each man fixed his eyes before his feet.
Flowed up the hill and down King William Street,
To where St Mary Woolnoth kept the hours
With a dead sound on the final stock of nine.
There I saw one I knew, and stopped him crying: ‘Stetson!
You, who were with me in the ships at Mylae!
That corpse you planted last year in your garden,
Has it begun to sprout? Will it bloom this year?
Or has the sudden frost disturbed its bed?
Oh keep the Dog far hence, that’s friend to men,
Or with his nails he’ll dig it up again!
You! hypocrite lecteur!-mon semblable,-mon frere!”

The Josephine Hart Poetry Foundation was set up by Lord Saatchi to further the advancement of arts, culture and education, with a focus on poetry, literature and dramatic performance.

Through the Poetry Movement, The Josephine Hart Poetry Foundation wants to stand as the next logical step in terms of the way we consume verse. It will grow and develop into a creative space that encapsulates the beauty of imagination and inventiveness.

“The Waste Land” is the second film out of three for the launch of the Poetry Movement. The two others are directed by Onur Senturk and David Lobser
