Elegy Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Jared Pelletier (2017)

Narrated by: Christopher Plummer

“A short film based on the setting and gameplay of Hinterland’s exploration-survival experience, “The Long Dark”, by Hinterland Studio Inc.

To illustrate this vision for how THE LONG DARK will make the transition to live-action, Hinterland has produced a five-minute short film, Elegy, directed by Jared Pelletier, performed by Oscar-winning actor Christopher Plummer, and written by van Lierop.

“I describe Elegy as a visual poem”, says van Lierop, who also executive produced the short. “Jared’s passion for the source material is evident — he really connected with THE LONG DARK’s artistic sensibilities, and the game’s unique sense of identity within its own fiction. I think Elegy stands as an example of the level of quality and the overall tone I’d like to deliver in THE LONG DARK film.”

Narrated by: Tom O’Bedlam

“A few months ago, a friend and I went to discover Morocco for a personal project. It was an amazing experience for both of us, and some of the witnessed places were breathtaking. I’m pretty sure that I’ll be back sooner or later.

So, with some of the images that we recorded, I made this little tribute to Mr. Charles Bukowski and his poem ‘The Laughing Heart’. And, of course, to my colleague Izhan, who’s being a fellow companion these last couple of years. For more adventures like this!”

“The Laughing Heart” by Charles Bukowski

your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is a light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you.

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.”

“When you started out,
You said you’d never look back.
But you had no idea then
That you’d end up here.
How could something so small
Come to this;
You started a time spark
That became a wildfire.”

“While I was cutting this reel, I new something was missing. It such a powerful score which matched the visuals, but I felt like it needed something more. It just felt like I was listening to my favourite a bands songs but the instrumental version… So I hit up my sister and told her I needed some poetry. I needed a voice over for my reel, it was the last peice. The only direction I gave her was to use the visuals ( Fire, eyes, water, or whatever it was ) and create a feeling that was inspiring and true to our story as filmmakers behind “Timelapse”. The last piece of advice I gave her was to not fear the feeling of vulnerability when creating this. I knew she would overthink the project because she was nervous of what I might think of it… but that would kill all creativy, and her ideas would be limited. I told her to write anything that she loved and felt right to her. The result… Being the artistic human that she is, literally 5 hours later I got this recording. The slate was “take two” and she nailed it.”

“Love” 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
constructs
a miracle,
in imagination
anguishes
till born
in human—

looks out of the heart
burning with purity-
for the burden of life
is love,
but we carry the weight
wearily,
and so must rest
in the arms of love
at last,
must rest in the arms
of love.

No rest
without love,
no sleep
without dreams
of love—
be mad or chill
obsessed with angels
or machines,
the final wish
is love
—cannot be bitter,
cannot deny,
cannot withhold
if denied:

the weight is too heavy

—must give
for no return
as thought
is given
in solitude
in all the excellence
of its excess.

The warm bodies
shine together
in the darkness,
the hand moves
to the center
of the flesh,
the skin trembles
in happiness
and the soul comes
joyful to the eye—

yes, yes,
that’s what
I wanted,
I always wanted,
I always wanted,
to return
to the body
where I was born.

Poem Read by:  Sh’maya

“YHWH” by Sh’maya

I am the might before the sword
The tremors in the spear shaft
I craft my ways from blazes of firestorms
Absorb the failings of deadened ends
To render the floors I dance upon
I am the spaces between applause
The roars of hearts running through Heaven’s halls

I breathe the forms of light and silence
Stall the course of cosmic riots
I am the glory of the giants Manaslu / Sagarmatha
Watchmen of the Asian plains
They yield my name
Made famous through the cries
Of albatross flocks enflamed in Pacific fires

I am dressed in the spray of Nevada dunes
Clothed in the shadows of Sahara caves
I am the light of lunar flames fleshing the rains of Amazonia
I paint the trains of Antarctic quests
Release dominion to desert Panthera

I authorise the remains of Aztec and Inca
That bloom through the visions of mountain tribes
I ride the skylines breathe the signs
Ignite the paths of astronomy’s eyes
I am the unheard heard in the storms that burn on my words
I am the yearned for
I am the Word

I emerge deciduous from the wetlands of your cries
Rise through the moments you wake
I bring the dawns that shake the fevers from your remembrance
I am here
I am imminent

I am he who crosses the plains through which you strayed
Discover the parts extinction seared
I dust away the dried remains of tears
I drain the lakes of your regrets
I wet the wells
till the soil
Placate the toil
quell the rages
Sew the broken pages
With my belief in you

I bring the you you have never quite met
I am the desire that keeps your pillow wet
I am the heartbeat you seek when you chase after dreams
In the reachings and sighs you are looking for me

In the body touching body
It is me you seek
In the groans and the longings
It is me you seek
In the yearning dream
In the need-to-be-seen
In the love-me love-me
It is me you seek
In the breath-drop wonders
In the gasping hunger
In the touch of a stranger
That makes you feel younger
In the books and the fables
In the this-is-me labels
In the is-this-me?
Is this me?
In the hear-me hear-me
Say-my-name
In the touch-me need-me find-me need-me
In the aching pain
In the love
In the music
In the beats
And the taste
In the heat
In the need
And the need
For embrace
In the colour
In the gaze
In the meaning
The desire
In the flame
Of the voice
And the spirit
Of the fire

When you cry for more my name you weep
I am he who waits for you to reach
I reach for you and wait
When you lie half broken and awake
I am the watchman of your sleep
I wait and wait til the shakings cease

I am the Truth they call release
When the darkness flares and starts to speak
I sculpt the shades of daybreak
It is me you seek
