The Letter - You Will Not Have My Hatred Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed By Salomon Leightelm 2019

“I vividly remember the morning I read these powerful words for the first time. It was a cold November afternoon and a friend of mine had shared it on Instagram. As I was reading, I glanced over at my son playing in the living room – he was 17 months old, and I started coming undone. My wife looked over at me and I couldn’t speak, I just handed her the phone, and she also just came undone. These words had stuck with me for 4 years and they haven’t let go of me. How can a man, who had suffered so much, have a such a spirit of resilience and grace? Thank you Antoine Leiris for seeing the world unlike how most people see it – for showing a way that flows in the opposite direction of hate, and retaliation. Its words like yours that change the world. This film is a contemplative meditation on those words, be patient with it.”

Excerpts from Letters and Poems of Wilfred Owen

Boys
Breaking the surface of the ebony pond.
Flashes
Of swimmers carving through the sparkling cold
Fleshes
Gleaming with wetness to the morning gold.

Dim, through the misty panes and thick green light,
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning
He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.

In Flanders Fields Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Tim Mountain 2017

“In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae (1915)

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

“I Like For You To Be Still” by Pablo Neruda

I like for you to be still
It is as though you are absent
And you hear me from far away
And my voice does not touch you
It seems as though your eyes had flown away
And it seems that a kiss had sealed your mouth
As all things are filled with my soul
You emerge from the things
Filled with my soul
You are like my soul
A butterfly of dream
And you are like the word: Melancholy

I like for you to be still
And you seem far away
It sounds as though you are lamenting
A butterfly cooing like a dove
And you hear me from far away
And my voice does not reach you
Let me come to be still in your silence
And let me talk to you with your silence
That is bright as a lamp
Simple, as a ring
You are like the night
With its stillness and constellations
Your silence is that of a star
As remote and candid

I like for you to be still
It is as though you are absent
Distant and full of sorrow
So you would’ve died
One word then, One smile is enough
And I’m happy;
Happy that it’s not true.

“By dint of searching, sometimes you’ll finally find… what you were not after.”

Philppe Lejeune

“Since past years, I often dreamt of shooting time lapses. This night again, I was on top of a slate metallic roof lit by the moon. Viewpoint was awesome, opening on the seaside with a red lighthouse sweeping the mist. I was licking the salt on my lips. 
But in those dreams, i’m always late setting up my camera or i just forgot to charge my battery missing the occasion to capture this ephemeral moment.

paris-noir-cinematic-time-lapse-short-film-directed-by-benjamin-trancart-2017

Positive side of it is that during those dreams my brain has created fantastic images, unbelievable landscapes, volcanoes, and luxuriant forests. Some places that will never exist but that i’ll never forget. However i open my eyes and i still go and look for those places.

I’m aware that we have to live things and not look at them through the lens of a camera but harvest time is an incredible moment.

Maybe we’ll meet one night on a slate metallic roof messed around by a pale moonlight.”
