“NIÑO – Corse Roadtrip”: A Cinematic Poem Travel Short Film Directed By Sebastian Linda (2020)

“NIÑO – Corse Roadtrip” is Cinematic Poems Travel Short Film In Italy Featuring Poem by Kahlil Gibran Directed by Sebastian Linda.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Sebastian Linda

Original Music by: Sebastian Linda (Spotify)

Here is the new music and film from our Roadtrip to the beautiful island of corse.

On the way we listened together as a family to the poetry from Kali Gibran and the Poem “On Children” really stuck with us, while watching the beauty of Corse unfolding in front of our eyes.

I wrote the song about a year ago and recorded it, but I needed more time to understand my inner thoughts to create the combination of reality and fantasy children have.

Maybe some childhood dreams awake from your side. It’s important to create a great life for your children, but don’t forget. Your children, are not your children.

“On Children” by Kahlil Gibran (1883 – 1931)

And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children.
And he said:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

Sonnet 116 Cinematic Poem Short Film For Vogue Italia Directed by Federico Mazzarisi (2019)

“Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare”

Let me not to the marriage of true minds 
Admit impediments. Love is not love 
Which alters when it alteration finds, 
Or bends with the remover to remove. 
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark 
That looks on tempests and is never shaken; 
It is the star to every wand’ring bark, 
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken. 
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks 
Within his bending sickle’s compass come; 
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, 
But bears it out even to the edge of doom. 
If this be error and upon me prov’d, 
I never writ, nor no man ever lov’d.

Poem by: Erin Hanson

“This is a film I shot while on a cycling trip with my dad in March of 2019. Italy is a truly inspiring place and I knew that if I would have come home without this footage, it would have been a huge regret.”

Filmed in Tavarnelle, Val Di Pesa, Tuscany.

From the moment that you are in this world
They tell you what is fair.
The questions you are allowed to ask
And the ones you would not dare.

Put on the path they have paved for you,
Life pushes you along,
Without the chance to stop and think
Which path is right, whether you belong.

“Fire, water, earth, air and LOVE… the fifth etheric element.
It’s a story inspired by the poem “Tonight I Can Write The Saddest Lines” of Pablo Neruda.

Filmed on PIANOSA Island, Italy.

“Tonight I Can Write The Saddest Lines” by Pablo Neruda

Write, for example,’The night is shattered
and the blue stars shiver in the distance.’

The night wind revolves in the sky and sings.

Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.

Through nights like this one I held her in my arms
I kissed her again and again under the endless sky.

She loved me sometimes, and I loved her too.
How could one not have loved her great still eyes.

Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
To think that I do not have her. To feel that I have lost her.

To hear the immense night, still more immense without her.
And the verse falls to the soul like dew to the pasture.

What does it matter that my love could not keep her.
The night is shattered and she is not with me.

This is all. In the distance someone is singing. In the distance.
My soul is not satisfied that it has lost her.

My sight searches for her as though to go to her.
My heart looks for her, and she is not with me.

The same night whitening the same trees.
We, of that time, are no longer the same.

I no longer love her, that’s certain, but how I loved her.
My voice tried to find the wind to touch her hearing.

Another’s. She will be another’s. Like my kisses before.
Her voide. Her bright body. Her inifinite eyes.

I no longer love her, that’s certain, but maybe I love her. 
Love is so short, forgetting is so long.

Because through nights like this one I held her in my arms
my sould is not satisfied that it has lost her.

Though this be the last pain that she makes me suffer
and these the last verses that I write for her.

“Imaginary Bird”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed By Alex Soloviev (2018)

“Imaginary Bird” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film in Rome Featuring Poet Charles Bukowski Directed By Alex Soloviev.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Alex Soloviev

Music by Jimmy Svensson / Artlist

Poem Read by: Tom O’Bedlam

“This poem is quite personal. It took much time to find way to visualize it. Dark and light parts of this video have a very special meaning.

We don our masks and our everyday armor, afraid of being found out. Afraid of being taken less seriously, as if happiness were a stain in our otherwise pristine, unbreakable facade. We hide our real selves away – our weak points and vulnerabilities. Until the time we can finally be ourselves again. Until we can finally breathe again. When no one else is looking.

The fact that from around a million to 5 millions of starlings choose the city of Rome as their wintering ground might appear as a blessing or just inspiration when you observe it. It remains one of the world’s greatest natural phenomena.”

“Bluebird” by Charles Bukowski

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I’m not going
to let anybody see
you.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I pour whiskey on him and inhale
cigarette smoke
and the whores and the bartenders
and the grocery clerks
never know that
he’s
in there.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say,
stay down, do you want to mess
me up?
you want to screw up the
works?
you want to blow my book sales in
Europe?

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too clever, I only let him out
at night sometimes
when everybody’s asleep.
I say, I know that you’re there,
so don’t be
sad.

then I put him back,
but he’s singing a little
in there, I haven’t quite let him
die
and we sleep together like
that
with our
secret pact
and it’s nice enough to
make a man
weep, but I don’t
weep, do
you?

“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.”
