“This short film portrays the lives of women and children from Rajasthan, India whom we’ve met along our journey. We found beauty in their kindness, in their perseverance for life, and most importantly in their relentless fight for equality, respect towards oneself and others.


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.”

The Weight of History Cinematic Poem Short Film Featuring Poet Robert Lowell Directed by Ben Jacks in 2015.JPG

“This experimental short was filmed in Florence, Italy. While traveling on honeymoon with my wife I was humbled by the abundance of historical artwork, architecture, and the religious presence within this city. There is a dark beauty there that is leveling to witness.

What I hope to represent, is the humility experienced in the presence of such environments and our place within history. Our smallness in time, contrasting to the beauty of what we can create, that stands witness so many years after.”

“HISTORY” by Robert Lowell

History has to live with what was here,
clutching and close to fumbling all we had–
it is so dull and gruesome how we die,
unlike writing, life never finishes.
Abel was finished; death is not remote,
a flash-in-the-pan electrifies the skeptic,
his cows crowding like skulls against high-voltage wire,
his baby crying all night like a new machine.
As in our Bibles, white-faced, predatory,
the beautiful, mist-drunken hunter’s moon ascends–
a child could give it a face: two holes, two holes,
my eyes, my mouth, between them a skull’s no-nose–
O there’s a terrifying innocence in my face
drenched with the silver salvage of the morn frost.
