‘It happens with people. It happens in solitude. It happens in the midst of incredible busyness. And incredible stillness.’ Might you take a step towards a contemplative life. A meditative life. A life of quiet and courageous transformation.
Does the pace of this world cause you to falter? Does it sometimes make you want to fill your lungs with available air and scream ‘stop this ride I want to get off’? A film about the experience of the introvert.
Filming people with an absence of judgment or condition causes the subject to speak with an entirely original and courageous voice. It’s this voice that I’ve made my films from. This sequence exemplifies the tone of such a voice. A grand starting point if you are new here.
Start with Nothing. No-thing. No act on your part. For this moment in time set down your requirements. Let the experience of each film subject find you, not you them. Like the experience of music. Witnessing is not an act on your part. Let it. Simply let it.
When we are seen without judgment or condition, we are known. When we are known, we become aware that we belong to each other. It is such an awareness that might change the world. These are essential notes on how best to experience these film portraits.
