“When I was a child for fun
I counted every step it took me to get home,
One foot after the other.
How many steps have I taken to get here
Now to become what I am.”

Words and Narration by: OSHO Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

“How was India?”

The world has enough technology now
If it’s old prejudices and stupidity can be dropped
We can make the whole world a paradise, nothing is lacking

If we can reach to the moon
If we can create so much destructive power
The same power can be transferred into creativity.

You are a guest
Leave this Earth, a little more beautiful
For those unknown guests who will be following you
Nobody belongs here
But for the moment we are here
And we have to make this moment as beautiful as possible.

Wherever you are, it will be here and now
Live as intentionally and totally now
Otherwise, life goes on slipping from your hands like water
Soon you will have empty hands
And meeting death with empty hands, is an utter failure.

“Sometimes I think of the world as a group of people. Everyone
without exception is performing the same show.”

around-a-vision-cinematic-poem-short-film-trailer-directed-by-riccardo-chemello-2017

“The aim of Around a Vision is to observe places, people,
stories that question our certainties. We want to tell the
journey of five athletes that look for a different, holy,
almost primitive vision in the Asiatic land. Together with
their sporting, distorted vision of the city that is for
them a real playground they ll be able to reach their purpose.
Brace yourself, you re about to see Italy, India and Myanmar
lived between experiences at the limit of humanity, mystical
acquaintances and athletic evolutions.”

“The World Before Me”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film By David Bryan (2016)

“The World Before Me” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film Featuring Poet Walt Whitman Directed By David Bryan.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  David Bryan

Original Music by: Lynnae Gryffin and David Bryan
Narrated by: Arpita Patnaik

“The World Before Me is a modern-day round the world trip, set to the words of a 19th century poet.

‘Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road, healthy, free, the world before me.’ 160 years have passed since Walt Whitman penned this text, but feelings about travel remain the same. We’re still inspired by the open road and still excited by discovering the unknown.

In the fall of 2015, while preparing for a trip that would take me literally around the world, I couldn’t shake the desire to share the experience of travel, which for me is a very personal one. This film is the culmination of that desire. I carried my camera for 5 months through 15 countries. The endless metropolis of Tokyo, tiny islands of The Philippines, busy streets of India, the Swiss Alps and the Scottish Highlands. They’re all right here, for you, in 6 minutes.”

Excerpts from “Song of the Open Road” by Walt Whitman
1
Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose.
Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune,
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms,
Strong and content I travel the open road.
The earth, that is sufficient,
I do not want the constellations any nearer,
I know they are very well where they are,
I know they suffice for those who belong to them.
(Still here I carry my old delicious burdens,
I carry them, men and women, I carry them with me wherever I go,
I swear it is impossible for me to get rid of them,
I am fill’d with them, and I will fill them in return.)
2
You road I enter upon and look around, I believe you are not all that is here,
I believe that much unseen is also here.
Here the profound lesson of reception, nor preference nor denial,
The black with his woolly head, the felon, the diseas’d, the illiterate person, are not denied;
The birth, the hasting after the physician, the beggar’s tramp, the drunkard’s stagger, the laughing party of mechanics,
The escaped youth, the rich person’s carriage, the fop, the eloping couple,
The early market-man, the hearse, the moving of furniture into the town, the return back from the town,
They pass, I also pass, any thing passes, none can be interdicted,
None but are accepted, none but shall be dear to me.

Poem from “Cost of Living” by Arundhati Roy

“To Love. To Be Loved. To Never Forget”

“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget.”

“Varanasi – Where Time Stops”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed By Nitin Das (2015)

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Nitin Das

Music by:  Chris Zabriskie (“The Temperature of the Air on the Bow of the Kaleetan”)

Narrated by:  Jasleen Bhalla

Varanasi Where Life and Death Meet Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Nitin Das

“Varanasi is one of India’s oldest cities. It’s a city where time appears to stand still. A place considered as the spiritual capital of India. Watch this 2 minute film to catch the essence of life and death in Varanasi.”

“When Life and Death Meet” by Nitin Das 

When Life and Death meet,
they seldom greet

Life is surprised
Death has arrived

While Death complains, Life is late
and made him wait

Time stands still, to watch the show
He reminds them, what they already know

The illusion my friends, is in my flow
For some I move fast, for some I go slow

Like the river runs to meet the sea,
You two are meant to be, since eternity

In that moment, they see the light
A gentle embrace, ends their fight

Life and Death like lovers become one
and Time proceeds to turn.

“Daily life in the Indian holy cities of Rishikesh, Haridwar, and Devprayag. This region lies in the foothills of the Himalayas where the Ganges River descends from the mountains. I visited not knowing what to expect, and I was both awed and saddened by the experience. The beauty of nature and the Hindu ceremonies contrasted with the poverty and suffering on the streets. The people I met had a high-spirited resilience that seemed to stem from surviving and maintaining their devotion through a challenging life.”

“If Tomorrow Starts Without Me”

by David Romano (1993)

“If tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not here to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you
And each time that you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand.
He said my place was ready, in heaven far above
And that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love.
But as I turned and walked away a tear fell from my eye.
For all my life I’d always thought, I didn’t want to die.
I had so much to live for, so much left yet to do.
It seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays the good ones and the bad.
I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had.”
