The Female Bond Cinematic Poem Short Film For She's Mercedes Directed by Aldona Kwiatkowski 2017

Poem by: Jacqueline Suskin

“There is no better bond than ours: female friendship and mutual support from childhood on.”

“For this year’s International Women’s Day, She’s Mercedes tells a story of feminine energy and female unity, envisioning a utopian community based on diversity, warm fellowship and 
a regal attitude, starring Malaysian musician Yuna.

Between cactus fields and green hills a tale unfolds that plays with the viewers’ perception of dream and reality. Over the course of the film, an invisible bond brings the four protagonists together. They meet in a magical place that serves as a visual interpretation of an inspiring, connecting and empowering bond between our heroines. Only to be interrupted by a surprising, final plot twist that sheds new light on their friendship…

She’s Mercedes is an initiative dedicated to inspiring, connecting and empowering women who are driven to make things happen.”

“The Tale Of Thomas Burberry”: A Cinematic Poem Promotional Short Film Directed By Asif Kapadia (2016)

“The Tale Of Thomas Burberry”: A Cinematic Poem Promotional Short Film For Burberry Directed By Asif Kapadia.

Directed by:  Asif Kapadia

Written by:  Matt Charman
Music by: Lawless featuring Britt Warner  (“Diminuendo”)
Film Production: Black Label
Executive Producer: Dom Freeman
Produced by: Jule Fennell
Cinematography: Dion Beebe
Edited by: Johnny Rayner
Post-Production: The Mill
Starring: Domhnall Gleeson, Sienna Miller
Dominic West and Lily James
The Tale of Thomas Burberry weaves the young founder of Burberry in with the brand’s connection to key brand ambassadors and markets. Burberry was established in 1856 when 21-year-old Thomas Burberry, a former draper’s apprentice, opened his own store in Basingstoke, Hampshire, England. He died in 1926, years before Betty Kirby-Green flew the Burberry Plane in 1937.

Burberry is currently celebrating its 160th anniversary, so they’ve done what any other dominant brand would do in such circumstances: make a massively ambitious film about it.


This no-expense-spared approach includes Hollywood-scale production values, multiple set locations and a cast that features Domhnall Gleeson, Sienna Miller, Dominic West and Lily James. The script was written by Academy Award-nominated Matt Charman (Bridge of SpiesSuite Française, Patriots Day) and directed by Academy Award-winning Asif Kapadia (The Warrior, Senna, Amy), all set to an epic soundtrack.

“Your Verse”: Cinematic Poem Apple iPad Air Commercial Featuring Walt Whitman Narrated By Robin Williams (2014)

Apple is drawing on Robin Williams’ performance in Dead Poets Society to create an air of inspiration and creativity around the tablet. Titled Your Verse, the clip looks to make Whitman’s O Me! O Life! the focal point of the campaign, and includes stories from other people using the Air out in the world.

Produced by:  Apple Inc.

Narrated by:  Robin Williams

“We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion.

And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?”

Answer. That you are here – that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?”

“Onmyou Prayer”

“Supreme gods, bless us so that calamities do not befall us. May there be peace and happiness, and long life, and may our descendants prosper and become notable, not through fortune or fame, but through love and deed.

May our rice field flourish and our silkworm cultures thrive, may our works be blessed in your eyes. May evil spirits be banished, and ghostly auras be destroyed. Divine talismans hold something unfathomable, they settle eternally in the courtyard. Their tally miraculous. Numerous in the past, blessings impossible to put into words. May the gods protect us all our days.

May Heaven, Earth, and Water guard all living things. May all constellations sustain and protect me. May all the seasons of the year, all hours of our day be free of disaster, innocent of harm. May the stars of good come, and the stars of evil disperse. . .”

Directed by:  David Gordon Green

Advertising Agency:  Wieden+Kennedy (W+K)

Narrated By and Starring:  Quvenzhane Wallis

The world is full of giants.
They have always been here, lumbering in the schoolyards, limping through the alleys.
We had to learn how to deal with them, how to overcome them.
We were small but fast, remember?
We were like a wind appearing out of nowhere.
We knew that being clever was more important than being the biggest kid in the neighborhood.
As long as we keep our heads down, as long as we work hard,
trust what we feel in our guts, our hearts,
Then we’re ready.
We wait until they get sleepy,
wait until they get so big they can barely move,
and then walk out of the shadows,
quietly walk out of the dark—and strike.
