“Alone With Everybody” by Charles Bukowski

the flesh covers the bone 
and they put a mind 
in there and 
sometimes a soul, 
and the women break 
vases against the walls 
and the men drink too 
much 
and nobody finds the 
one 
but keep 
looking 
crawling in and out 
of beds. 
flesh covers 
the bone and the 
flesh searches 
for more than 
flesh. 

there’s no chance 
at all: 
we are all trapped 
by a singular 
fate. 

nobody ever finds 
the one. 

the city dumps fill 
the junkyards fill 
the madhouses fill 
the hospitals fill 
the graveyards fill 

nothing else 
fills.

“A fine line separates memory from imagination;
I remember places and people that I’ve always imagined.
And sometimes I imagined things I think I remember.”

“IVORI is a short fashion film for the fashion brand from Barcelona with the same name. All the clothes that appear on the video are exclusively made by IVORI.

The film is a dreamlike and aesthetic travel through the memories of a guy who remembers a girl (Bet Moret) who he met –or thinks he met- long time ago. While the voice of the guy recalls all the places and common experiences he remembers, we discover the girl doing the same things they did together but by herself.”

“Hoosier Quilt” by Shari Wagner (Excerpt)

We take our fabric from the
Field that Lincoln plowed;
The same earthmound builders aligned
With the movement of stars.
We choose our colors from the trees
As they traveled toward winter…

“Romance Sonámbulo” by Federico García Lorca (Excerpt)

Green, how I want you green,
green wind, green branches.
The ship out on the sea
and the horse on the mountain.
With the shadow around her waist
she dreams on her balcony,
green flesh, green hair,
with eyes of cold silver.
Green, how I want you green.
Under the gypsy moon,
the things are watching her
and she cannot see them.
 
Green, how I want you green.
Big hoarfrost stars
come with the fish of shadow
that opens the road of dawn.
The fig tree rubs its wind
with the sandpaper of its branches,
and the woods, the cunning cat,
bristles its brittle fibers.
But who will come? And from where?
She is still on her balcony,
green wind, green hair,
dreaming in the bitter sea.

Amsterdam-based artist and director Ruben Van Leer’s latest film is a high-energy portrait of professional tenor and amateur boxer Frank Engel, made in collaboration with the Dutch National Opera with the aim of attracting a different audience into its drama-filled world. Here, Van Leer talks about the story behind the film:

“This film is about the courageousness of self-expression. A battle with the self is the ultimate revolution. Frank is a boxer and a tenor in the chorus of Amsterdam’s Dutch National Opera. In the film he’s fighting his demon, a shadow of himself.

 “A battle with the self is the ultimate revolution”

“His fear of going on stage is bigger than that of death, of finally letting his voice be heard to the public and mastering his art. I wanted to make a tiny opera film: an existential theme that resonates within the streets, outside of theatre walls.”

” ‘My Child is Dreaming’: The idyllic world of children against adults’ dreamlike visions.

my-child-is-dreaming-cinematic-visual-poem-animated-short-film-directed-by-pask-damico-2016

When my daughter was born I bought my first diary. In the beginning I was just taking notes of her progress, reactions and likes. Then I began writing about my dreams as well. After two years, I’ve collected all the most beautiful bits to create a video.From such duality, a project called “My child is dreaming” was born.

my-child-is-dreaming-cinematic-visual-poem-animated-short-film-directed-by-pask-damico-2016

It is an introspective journey full of metaphors and paradoxes that put in contrast the idyllic and enchanted world of children with adults’ dreamlike visions, sometimes a bit pessimistic and obsessive.”

“A cinematic video showing our epic journey on the Iceland ring road.

iceland-heres-to-the-travelers-cinematic-poem-travel-short-film-directed-by-tobi-schnorpfeil-2016

Iceland has always been one of my dream destinations! Its rugged terrain, massive waterfalls and arctic flair have always been famous for being highly photogenic. There is something wild about this island and I tried to capture it in this film. Together with some friends we rented cars and planned to make the ring road in about 2 weeks which is not a lot of time. A major highlight of the trip was being able to see some intense polar lights!”

“Cinematic short film “Never Forgotten” commemorates the 100th anniversary of the First World War, and the young lives which were sacrificed.

Director Jamie Childs (Vera, Lucky Man) and Gareth Brannan (Director & VFX Supervisor at The Mill) tell the story of one ‘War Boy’s hopes and sorrows, on his last journey through no mans land, disappearing into the horizon alongside his brothers in arms.

The A. E. Housman poem “Soldier From The Wars Returning” is set to a moving cinematic score composed by Tom Player (Trailer music composer for The Hobbit, Game of Thrones) and our fallen gather in chorus to whistle the traditional WWI song, “Keep The Home Fires Burning”. The recording features the “Molitor Stradivarius” c.1697 played by Johnathan Hill.

Today more than ever we feel its important for people to stop and remember the huge sacrifices made during WWI, one hundred years ago. This respectful and thought provoking tribute reminds us how much we owe for the freedoms we enjoy today.”

“Soldiers From The Wars Returning” by A.E. Housman (1922)

Soldier from the wars returning,
Spoiler of the taken town,
Here is ease that asks not earning;
Turn you in and sit you down.

Peace is come and wars are over,
Welcome you and welcome all,
While the charger crops the clover
And his bridle hangs in stall.

Now no more of winters biting,
Filth in trench from tall to spring,
Summers full of sweat and fighting
For the Kesar or the King.

Rest you, charger, rust you, bridle;
Kings and kesars, keep your pay;
Soldier, sit you down and idle
At the inn of night for aye.

Inuit Poem

I think over again my small adventures, my fears
Those small ones that seemed so big.
For all the vital things I had to get and to reach.
And yet there is only one great thing,
The only thing,
To live to see the great day that dawns
And the light that fills the world.
