on the return

en route 66, western arizona

Thursday, April 02, 2009

wim wenders was here, for a workshop with bauhaus students and to talk about his films with the audience. as there was nobody to pose the first question after the screening of »the state of things« in our »lichthaus« theatre in the old weimar streetcar shed, i said, »my question is not exactly about the movie, but more genereal. a couple of months ago you were on kqed in san francisco, and a friend of mine called and asked you about rilke, handke, wings of desires, and what your inspirations were.« now, my question for wenders was how he felt about the visuality of the u.s., and if he remembered his epiphany with america and photography. wenders said that it was in new york, at the age of 26 when he first came to the u.s. and didn't do anything but taking pictures with his polaroid and watching american tv. because things you had seen so many times before looked even better in your own pictures. and american tv was so different from german tv with its 2 public channels. after a while, wenders said, he found that what was so fascinating about the us is that it is so attractive at first, and disgusting at a closer look. and since it has been like this. »but you want to know even more, i guess.«

When you truly believe in Fascism, one hand is not enough.

Italy sucks.

I would like to get rid of my Italian citizenship, people up there at the governement should be ashamed of themselves.
May I suggest an article.

This one.

This is a picture of the opposition POURING CHAMPAGNE AND EATING MORTADELLA when Prodi lost the vote of confidence in the Senate.

go and see

>>Auf der anderen Seite<< >>De l'autre Coté<< >>Ai Confini del Paradiso<< >>The Edge of Heaven<< Four titles for one movie. The French is closest to the original. How many meanings does the title convey, how many stories the movie tell? [hint: iDentity, simple, double, multiple, changing between the places, integration]. Well, find out. For now, I can only highly recommend Fatih Akin's new movie.

Apres une longue absence/After a long silence

Feelings mixed & confused for now.
too confusing to be talked about.
in the moment.

Leaving the country in days, counting
Too little to do too much. to do where?
tryin. hard.

Weird love stories aquarelling somewhere.

I had warned you
Currently not intelligible.
but still wandering at night camera wide open.

Hello SOMA!

So. Here me and Bibia say hello to the camera, to the sky, and to all of those who at that very moment were not in Paris.
That day Bibia and I went and had a GREAT breakfast at LPQ (Le Pain Quotidien) where they have the greatest hazelnut spread. The tables there are in thick wood and extra-loOong, perfect to have a SOMeAl. So, the next time we hang out all together (...) let's go there.
Yesterday I saw Death of a President - italian TV gets better!- which I very much enjoyed, especially for the use of the typical language of a documentary. It really felt like a real documentary and made me realize how much can be scripted and staged on an actual one. Duh.
