Blanes Breath Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Alex Soloviev 2017

“There are special places when you arrive there, you feel like you’re at home. I was in one. A small town in Spain, Blanes. Quiet and cozy in the off-season when there’re no packs of tourists on a big buses. This is more personal video. There is no many complicated transitions and shots, but rather attempt to convey the feeling of coziness of this place.”

“Time In Eternity” by Tom Merrill

When you were as an angel in my arms,
Had laid your bare head just below my chin,
Your length pressed up to mine, entrusting charms
My whole youth’s starward longing could not win;
With still the murmur of your love in me,
Miracle-tones of all my lifelong hope,
I wished that there might start eternity
And seal forever that sweet envelope;

And as it did, my thoughts are now for you
As every star is blotted by the sun,
And so the sun itself
Has perished too,
And with it, every dream of mine
But one.

“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.”

Street Sweeper Cinematic Poem Short Film in Barcelona Spain Directed by Rupert Walker

“Street Sweeper” (from “The Three Dimensions of a Complete Life”)

by Martin Luther King Jr.

“What I’m saying to you this morning, my friends, even if it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, go on out and sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures; sweep streets like Handel and Beethoven composed music; sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry; (Go ahead) sweep streets so well that all the host of heaven and earth will have to pause and say, “Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well.”

If you can’t be a pine on the top of a hill

Be a scrub in the valley—but be

The best little scrub on the side of the hill,

Be a bush if you can’t be a tree.

If you can’t be a highway just be a trail

If you can’t be the sun be a star;

It isn’t by size that you win or fail—

Be the best of whatever you are.

And when you do this, when you do this, you’ve mastered the length of life.”

“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.

Allegoria Cinematic Poem Time-Lapse Short Film in La Rioja, Spain Directed by Nobilis Bellator in 2016

“Allegoria” by Noufel Bouzeboudja

“Lying upon a hill, life unfolds above me. The sky is my roof and the ground my cradle, my bed. Look at my arches! Naked. Abandoned. I served for so long. Now, I am alone.

Does anyone hear my echo, my cries, my words?

Here is my share, my place in the sky?

At dawn, when the sun rises, I wake up to my dreams, to my fears as well. And I renew my hopes.

Stealthily, I spring up from the depths, letting myself go, flow. I slide – inside, up, out- following those shadows, casted here and there.

I am something, anything, half a thing, a double of two things. I am what I left behind, what I have inside. I am the actual here and now.

I stretch an arm to touch the shape-shifting moving clouds. Dark, with their blues, their pinks, orange, purples and whites.

I look at time’s tide and capture the feelings. Time is not about a measure, time is about passion. I need passion, YES. But only if brought to devotion.

I am neither from here nor from there, joy is my identity. I put the moon on my shoulder, it tells me about tenderness and bounty. I am from everywhere. My heart, open. My soul doesn’t have an age, my age is liberty.

Let me wander through hills and valleys. Hope is our strongest weapon to fight against oppression. Feel, raising in your depths, the angry scream of insubordination.

Everything sacred has to be reinvented, shaken.

Wind, whistling change, is blowing now on the past. I hear whispers woven in creation of a thousand smiles.

Somewhere, somehow, we are connected. We, somewhat, with some differences, and at different doses, drink the same sip of pain, of joy, to show that we are able to resist. We walk, together, connected or disjointed, towards somewhere, something, someone. All we need is a smile, a word, a listening ear, a shoulder.

The moonlight, silver shimmering, glows within my heart. In its lissome steps leading the path, it whispers: Join in the shadows’ dance. Enkindle the light within you.

The wind brings many unanswerable questions. This rotten past-present-prison order stamps on us an absolute nervousness. Do we listen to each other? Do we care for each other?

My mouth is filled with ashes, echoes and cries… Cries against the orders. I see them rising. Invisible. Our FEARS are the invisible walls.

Humans, stop your ruthless determination for power. Rise. Be a daring cloud. The aching roar of thunder’s rage is surging in your soul. The insurrection will take root!

Let life wave its shapes and colours! Tell all the elements to follow the call of the uprising!

I feel a stirring in my bones. A yearning to be free and ignite the rebellion against the gray beard of bloody dark oppressive winters.

I dare its power. I celebrate the golden warmth oozing out from the folds of my toughened soil.

Let there be light!”

“Highland Fairytale”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film In Spain Directed By Alex Soloviev (2016)

“Highland Fairytale” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film in Montserrat, Spain Featuring an Excerpt from “Haunted Houses” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Directed by Alex Soloviev.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Alex Soloviev

Music by:  Kaı Engel

Narrated by:  Tom O’Bedlam

Highland Fairytale Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Alex Soloviev in 2016

“There’re many places in this world where have you been and missed something that was not included in your tourist guide. When you all of sudden see them, these hidden gems awake you to different points of view by allowing you to transcend your ordinary experiences and imagination. Saw-edged mountain is source of deep impressions caused by the singularity of the place.”

“Haunted Houses” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 

All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the door-way, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

There are more guests at table than the hosts
Invited; the illuminated hall
Is thronged with quiet, inoffensive ghosts,
As silent as the pictures on the wall.

The stranger at my fireside cannot see
The forms I see, nor hear the sounds I hear;
He but perceives what is; while unto me
All that has been is visible and clear.

We have no title-deeds to house or lands;
Owners and occupants of earlier dates
From graves forgotten stretch their dusty hands,
And hold in mortmain still their old estates.

The spirit-world around this world of sense
Floats like an atmosphere, and everywhere
Wafts through these earthly mists and vapours dense
A vital breath of more ethereal air.

Our little lives are kept in equipoise
By opposite attractions and desires;
The struggle of the instinct that enjoys,
And the more noble instinct that aspires.

These perturbations, this perpetual jar
Of earthly wants and aspirations high,
Come from the influence of an unseen star
An undiscovered planet in our sky.

And as the moon from some dark gate of cloud
Throws o’er the sea a floating bridge of light,
Across whose trembling planks our fancies crowd
Into the realm of mystery and night,—

So from the world of spirits there descends
A bridge of light, connecting it with this,
O’er whose unsteady floor, that sways and bends,
Wander our thoughts above the dark abyss.
