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.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Paweł Jankowski And Zdzisław Folga

A Touch Of Podlasie Cinematic Visual Poem Short Film Trailer in Poland Directed by Paweł Jankowsk & Zdzisław Folga Poster 2015

“Cząstka Podlasia” (A Touch of Podlasie), a film by three artists about their region…Podlasie, a historical region in eastern Poland, (that) covers the parts of three provinces: Podlaskie, Lubelskie, and a tiny portion of Mazowieckie. Named after its dense forests, it is viewed as the most pristine Polish region to this day. It is also called “Kresy” (the borderlands), a name it derives from the close proximity to the border. The accent of its people is called “kresowy,” due to its softness and similarity to Russian.

Zdzisław Folga, Paweł Jankowski and the score’s author Marek Kubik were trying to show in Cząstka Podlasia every feature of this magical land. Today, they are finishing their work on the 36-minute document, in which, just like in the cult Baraka by Rob Fricke from 1992, not a single word is said.”

Man In Nature Cinematic Poem Short Film Showreel For The Brothers M By Silviu And Bogdan Mustatea

Narrated by:  Alan Watts

“Man in nature” is at its basis, a collection of images from different projects The Brothers M had over the year 2015 and it Introduces some of Romania’s most iconic images in some of Europe’s last wild places: the Danube Delta & the Carpathian Mountains. Shot mostly with the DJI Phantom 3 & Sony A7s, the film brings the idea that when in nature, one doesn’t need to confront it’s environment, instead it needs to be one with it. This applies perfectly when testing its limits. Featuring Olympic winner Ivan Patzaichin (who grew up and trained in the Danube Delta), Andrei Rosu (first Romanian to swim the English Channel) and Petru Ariciuc, head of the Vatra Dornei mountain rescue agency.”

Excerpts from “The Real You” by Alan Watts

“If you’re ready to wake up, you’re going to wake up and if you’re not ready, you’re going to stay pretending that you’re just “poor little me”.

And since you’re all here and engaged in this sort of inquiry and listening to this sort of lecture, I
assume that you’re all on the process of waking up or else you’re teasing yourself with some kind of flirtation with waking up which you’re not serious about.

But I assume maybe you are not serious, but sincere that you are ready to wake up. So then, when you’re in the way of waking up and finding out who you really are, what you do is what the whole universe is doing at the place you call here and now.

You are something the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is something that the whole ocean is doing.

The real you is not a puppet which life pushes around.

The real, deep down you is the whole universe.

So then, when you die, you’re not going to have to put up with everlasting non-existing. Because that’s not an experience. A lot of people are afraid that when they die they’re going to be locked up in a dark room forever and sort of undergo that. But one of the most interesting things in the world – this is yoga, this is a way of realization.

Try and imagine what it will be like to go to sleep and never wake up.

Think about that.

Children think about that.

It’s one of the great wonders of life.

What will it be like to go to sleep and never wake up?

And if you think long enough about that, something will happen. You will find out, among other things. That it will pose the next question to you. What was it like to wake up after having never gone to sleep?

That was when you were born.

You see? You cant have an experience of nothing; Nature abhors a vacuum. So after you’re dead, the only thing that can happen is the same experience, or the same sort of experience of before you were born. In other words, we all know very well that after people die. Other people are born.
And they’re all you, only you can only experience one at a time.

Everybody is I, you all you’re you.

And wheresoever’s beings exist throughout all galaxies it doesn’t make a difference.

You are all of them and when they come into being as you come into being.

You know that very well.

Only you don’t have to remember the past in the same way you don’t have to think about you work thyroid gland or whatever else it is in your organism. You don’t have to know how to shine the sun., You just do it. Like you breathe. Doesn’t it really astonish you that you are the fantastically complex thing and that you’re doing all of this and you never had any education on how to do it.”

Malta Cinematic Poem Short Film Featuring Poem Where The Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein Directed by Alex Soloviev

Poem Read by:  Tom O’Bedlam

“Where The Sidewalk Ends” by Shel Silverstein

“There is a place where the sidewalk ends
and before the street begins,
and there the grass grows soft and white,
and there the sun burns crimson bright,
and there the moon-bird rests from his flight
to cool in the peppermint wind.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
and the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
we shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow
and watch where the chalk-white arrows go
to the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we’ll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
and we’ll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
for the children, they mark, and the children, they know,
the place where the sidewalk ends.”

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Viktar Malyshchyts

Music Composed by:  Tom Howe, Mike Reed and Matthew J. Robertson (“Beyond the Dawn”)

Belarus in Embrace of Stars cinematic time-lapse short film by Viktar Malyshchyts 2013

“…Discover Belarus under the starry sky! It’s a not large country in Eastern Europe bordered by Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania. Due to northern latitudes we are not able to see the Galaxy center and bright southern constellations. But we have romantic bright summer twilights, long winter nights with plenty of stars, we can observe silver noctilucent clouds and sometimes even auroras. In this short movie you can see Belarusian landscapes, castles and churches in unusual point of view: under the light of the night sky, in embrace of stars.”
