PASSION & LONELINESS

Cinema is a very difficult and serious art, It requires sacrificing of yourself. You should belong to it, it shouldn’t belong to you. Cinema uses your life, not vice versa.
— Andrei Tarkovsky
The advice I can give to beginners is not to separate their work, their movie, their film, from the life they live. Not to make a difference between the movie and their own life.
— Andrei Tarkovky

"Based upon a real incident. A woman named Sada Abe notoriously, if accidentally, killed her lover during the act of love itself. Fleeing the police, she cut off and took with her the very member that had connected them. She still had it when she was apprehended, and she was later convicted." 

 
 
En la calle, así me ha sucedido, me golpea tu recuerdo y ya no puedo caminar y algo me duele tanto que tengo que recargarme contra la pared.
— Querido Diego, te abraza Quiela, Elena Poniatowska
The Rain People is a 1969 film by Francis Ford Coppola.
Tintinnabulation is an area I sometimes wander into when I am searching for answers – in my life, my music, my work. In my dark hours, I have the certain feeling that everything outside this one thing has no meaning. The complex and many-faceted only confuses me, and I must search for unity. What is it, this one thing, and how do I find my way to it? Traces of this perfect thing appear in many guises – and everything that is unimportant falls away.
— Arvo Pärt

"Tintinnabuli is a compositional style created by the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, introduced in his Für Alina (1976) and Spiegel im Spiegel (1978). This simple style was influenced by the composer's mystical experiences with chant music. The works often have a slow and meditative tempo, and a minimalist approach to both notation and performance."

Inge Morath
