`Like this...you will just walk about the earth...'
`Well...and then?...'
`Then,rumors will spread that you are able to fly...'
`What rumors?Who will spread them?'
`I will...'
`Wait a minute.They will either beat you,or make fun of you...
And even if they don't beat you...what of it?...What will we achieve?'
`People will begin to come to you',replies Samuel.
`What for?'
`To find out your thoughts...'
`What thoughts?...'
`About the common good...'

Screening of "Dendral" @ Gallatin Galleries September 25th,2009

"Dendral"
is an atmospheric film that captures the visceral power of nature.
The soft vignetting and aureate color,all in camera effects,create an hypnotic dance between trees,fog and wind while abstracted sounds add a haunting aural quality.





I discovered in belles-lettres that the Giver can be transformed into his own Gift,that is,into a pure object.Chance has made me a man,generosity would make me a book.
Jean-Paul Sartre


SI QUIERES UNA PRUEBA DE MI TRISTEZA,
TENGO EN TUS OJOS LA MUERTE DE TODOS
MIS
suenos.
Peru Saizprez



Parto del realismo.Mi forma de iluminar y de ver es realista.No utilizo la imaginacion,utilizo la observacion.Muestro las cosas tal como son,sin distorsion.

Nestor Almendros



Everything is inmortal.
One should not be afraid of Death at 17 ,or 70.
There is neither gloom nor death in this world,
only clarity and light.We are all already on the shore
of the sea,and I am one of those who pulls the nets,
when immortality swims by like a school.


Heat
Grips me,I undid my collar and laid down-
and trumpets started trumpeting,
my eyelids were struck by light,and horses galloped,
mother is flying above the cobblestones,she beckons-
and vanished.....
And now I dream
Beneath the apple trees, a white ward,
and the white bed-sheet beneath my throat,
and the white doctor looks down at me,
and my white sister stands beside my feet ruffling her wings.
and they remained.
but mother came and beckoned -
and vanished....

Arseny Tarkovsky
