faces of new americans

8/18/2010

While working out the film treatment, I have answered the question of “what is it about?” Coming to film from a visual arts background does not automatically make you a storyteller. I have been analyzing a lot of my favorite directors’ films, in particular Bergman, Tarkovsky, and Godard.

Along side viewing  films, I have also been reading a lot of poetry and literature that addresses terror, injustice, and oppression. These are a few books among the many that have inspired me in the past few weeks: Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven and other poems, Anna Akhmatova: selected poems, especially the “Requiem,” T.S Eliot’s The Wasteland, and Haim Gordon and Rivca Gordon’s Sartre and Evil: Guidelines for a struggle.

More on the film in the next blog…
