Excerpts from “True Love” by Robert Penn Warren

In silence the heart raves. It utters words
Meaningless, that never had
A meaning. I was ten, skinny, red-headed,

Freckled. In a big black Buick,
Driven by a big grown boy, with a necktie, she sat
In front of the drugstore, sipping something

Through a straw. There is nothing like
Beauty. It stops your heart. It
Thickens your blood. It stops your breath…

Excerpts from “Song” by Allen Ginsberg

The weight of the world
is love.
Under the burden
of solitude,
under the burden
of dissatisfaction

the weight,
the weight we carry
is love.

Who can deny?
In dreams
it touches
the body,
in thought
a miracle,
in imagination
till born
in human–
looks out of the heart
burning with purity–
for the burden of life
is love,

“Sunburnt Country”: A Cinematic Visual Poem Short Film In Australia By Sam Brincat (2017)

“Sunburnt Country” is a Cinematic Visual Poem Short Film In Australia Directed By Sam Brincat.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Sam Brincat


“I have never really taken the time to travel my own country. I have travelled overseas a fair bit, as I was always more interested it what lay outside my own turf. But there is so much to discover in this rugged land of variation “Australia”.


“My Country” by Dorothea Mackellar

The love of field and coppice
Of green and shaded lanes,
Of ordered woods and gardens
Is running in your veins.
Strong love of grey-blue distance,
Brown streams and soft, dim skies
I know, but cannot share it,
My love is otherwise.

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror
The wide brown land for me!

The stark white ring-barked forests,
All tragic to the moon,
The sapphire-misted mountains,
The hot gold hush of noon,
Green tangle of the brushes
Where lithe lianas coil,
And orchids deck the tree-tops,
And ferns the warm dark soil.

Core of my heart, my country!
Her pitiless blue sky,
When, sick at heart, around us
We see the cattle die
But then the grey clouds gather,
And we can bless again
The drumming of an army,
The steady soaking rain.

Core of my heart, my country!
Land of the rainbow gold,
For flood and fire and famine
She pays us back threefold.
Over the thirsty paddocks,
Watch, after many days,
The filmy veil of greenness
That thickens as we gaze …

An opal-hearted country,
A wilful, lavish land
All you who have not loved her,
You will not understand
though Earth holds many splendours,
Wherever I may die,
I know to what brown country
My homing thoughts will fly.

“Lost But Not Forgotten-Forgotten Coast”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film Series Directed By Matthew Green (2017)

“Lost But Not Forgotten: Forgotten Coast” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film On The Isle of Wright Featuring Alfred Lord Tennyson Poem “Nothing Will Die” Directed By Matthew Green.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Matthew Green 

Aerial Cinematography by: Matthew Green and Stuart Hackshaw
Produced by: The Progress Film Company


“A poetic exploration of the Isle of Wight’s South West coastline, where coastal erosion and constant landslips have left abandoned towns and decaying holiday villages. Once home to Alfred Lord Tennyson, his poem ‘Nothing Will Die’ serves to highlight the never-ending cycle of death and rebirth along the coast.

This is the first film in our Lost But Not Forgotten series. Across Europe lies a multitude of hidden spaces, remote landscapes and mysterious figures that have, for years, remained unknown. Wearied by time, their stories have gone untold, until now.

Produced by The Progress Film Company, Lost But Not Forgotten shines light on a host of unique and compelling stories that share the common themes of memory, time and loss.”


“Nothing Will Die” by Alfred Lord Tennyson

When will the stream be aweary of flowing
Under my eye?
When will the wind be aweary of blowing
Over the sky?
When will the clouds be aweary of fleeting?
When will the heart be aweary of beating?
And nature die?
Never, oh! never, nothing will die;
The stream flows,
The wind blows,
The cloud fleets,
The heart beats,
Nothing will die.

Nothing will die;
All things will change
Thro’ eternity.
‘Tis the world’s winter;
Autumn and summer
Are gone long ago;
Earth is dry to the centre,
But spring, a new comer,
A spring rich and strange,
Shall make the winds blow
Round and round,
Thro’ and thro’,
Here and there,
Till the air
And the ground
Shall be fill’d with life anew.

The world was never made;
It will change, but it will not fade.
So let the wind range;
For even and morn
Ever will be
Thro’ eternity.
Nothing was born;
Nothing will die;
All things will change.

“India”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed By Neal Howland (2017)

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Neal Howland


Sound Design by: Neal Howland
Music by: Ryan Taubert (“Speak, We’re Listening”)

“In a land of sensory overload I’ve seen, heard, touched, tasted, and smelled more than I ever thought possible. Honestly, words fail me. So, this is my attempt to answer that question, with footage that I captured while on an epic tour of India last month.”

Locations: New Delhi, Old Delhi, Agra, (Rajasthan: Jodhpur, Jaipur, Udaipur)


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.

“The Problem Of The Wilderness”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed By Tom Welsh (2017)

“The Problem Of The Wilderness” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film In Alaska Featring Excerpts of Book by Bob Marshall Directed By Tom Welsh.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Tom Welsh


Music by: Bob Bradley
Narrated by: Daniel Dorse

“I went to Alaska for New Year with my friend Dan. We spent a week travelling North from Anchorage by rail, 4×4 & light aircraft.

The verse is from a book I found in our cabin that really resonated with the journey. Marshall was an environmental activist who wrote extensively about Alaska in the early 20th Century.”


“The Problem of the Wilderness” by Bob Marshall (1930)

It is well to reflect that the wilderness furnishes perhaps the best opportunity for pure esthetic enjoyment. This requires that beauty be observed as a unity, and that for the brief duration of any pure esthetic experience the cognition of the observed object must completely fill the spectator’s cosmos. There can be no extraneous thoughts—no question about the creator of the phenomenon, its structure, what it resembles or what vanity in the beholder it gratifies. “The purely esthetic observer has for the moment forgotten his own soul”;11 he has only one sensation left and that is exquisiteness. In the wilderness, with its entire freedom from the manifestations of human will, that perfect objectivity which is essential for pure esthetic rapture can probably be achieved more readily than among any other forms of beauty.

“The Clouded Morning”: A Cinematic Poem Aerial Short Film Directed By Sebastian Wöber (2016)

Music by: Stray Theories
Narrated by: Vesta Millard


“The Clouded Morning” by Jones Very

The morning comes, and thickening clouds prevail,
    Hanging like curtains all the horizon round,
Or overhead in heavy stillness sail;
    So still is day, it seems like night profound;
Scarce by the city’s din the air is stirred,
    And dull and deadened comes its every sound;
The cock’s shrill, piercing voice subdued is heard,
    By the thick folds of muffling vapors drowned.
Dissolved in mists the hills and trees appear,
    Their outlines lost and blended with the sky;
And well-known objects, that to all are near,
    No longer seem familiar to the eye,
But with fantastic forms they mock the sight,
As when we grope amid the gloom of night.
