GLEICH/EVEN

THE POETRYFILM „EVEN“ TOGETHER WITH THE POEM „WHY NOT EVEN NOW“ GIVES AN INSIGHT TO THE MAIN ISSUE OF THE POEM WHICH IS TO SHOW OUR SIMILARITY. I FILMED DIFFERENT RIGHT EYES, WHICH ARE DIRECTLY CONNECTED TO OUR HEART, AS THE MIRROR OF OUR SOUL. THE FILM IS IN BLACK AND WHITE, AS WE ARE BAD AND GOOD AND LIFE IS HARD AND BEAUTIFUL AT THE SAME TIME. ANCIENT KNOWLEDGE FROM CYRUS TO DA VINCI TEACHES US THAT ONLY THROUGH LIVING EQUALITY AND UNITY IN DIVERSITY WE CAN BRING PEACE TO THE WORLD. WE ARE ALREADY CLOSE TO REACH EUQALITY IF WE JUST BEGIN TO SEE IT AS OUR HIGHEST AIM.

THE EYES ARE OF THE CLOSE CIRCLE OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS, WHO ARE ALMOST PART OF THE FAMILY, MAINLY THROUGH THEIR SIMILARITIES. THE ENTIRE CONCEPT OF THE FILM INCLUDES THE FILMING ITSELF IN WHICH MY EYE IS VERY NEAR TO THE OTHERS. THE VERY CLOSENESS ALLOWS AND FORCES AT THE SAME TIME TO LOOK CLOSELY, FEEL INSIDE AND LET IT FLOW. ( AT THE END OF THE FILM I USED THE WATER NOISE RECORDED FROM A STREAM AS A MEDIUM TO SHOW THE FLOW OF LIFE) THE ENVIRONMENT, MY INNER PEACE AND THE OTHERS ATTITUDE AFFECTS THE SHARPNESS OF THE SHOT.

THAT ASPECT I USED TO STRESS OR EVEN ADD ANOTHER LEVEL TO CERTAIN TEXT PASSAGES . THE EYES ARE SPEAKING. WE LISTEN TO THEM AND HEAR EVEN MORE. WHEN WE SEE A MOUTH IT´S CLOSED AND SILENT. FOR ONE MOMENT THE MOUTH IS OPEN. THAT´S WHEN WE LISTEN TO LIES.THE EYES OF SPOUSE AND THE EYES OF THE MOTHER OR FATHER TO THEIR CHILD MAKE US RECOGNIZE THEIR CONNECTIONS AND LET US SEE DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES AND FUTURE VISIONS OF THE OLDER AND YOUNGER GENERATION. THE VIEWS ARE OPEN, SOMETIMES DOUBTING AND QUESTIONING, NERVOUS AND CLEAR , SMILING AND SAD. THE TEXT LEADS THROUGH LIGHT AND DARK, SOFTNESS AND BRUTALITY AND LANDS IN THE SAMENESS, WHICH CALMS YOU DOWN AND GIVES YOU HOPE. I REFER TO PAST AND CURRENT WARS , THE KNOWLEDGE OF NATURAL LAWS AS THE GOLDEN CUT AND WRITINGS OF THE PERSIAN KING SYRUS, IN WHICH THE SUBJECT OF EQUALITY OF CULTURES IS TREATED GENEROUSLY AND FULL OF HUMANITY. THE HOPE LIES IN FAITH IN SOMETHING GREATER, BIGGER AND WITH THE DANCING STARS I BRING IN THE SUFISM WITH ITS DANCE MEDITATION.

YOU ARE LOOKING IN THE EYES OF OTHERS AND ARE LOOKED AT, REFLECT AND SEE REFLECTIONS, FEEL AND DISCOVER FEELINGS. THE EYE WITH HIS WHOLE SYMBOLISM, STRONGLY, ALMOST DISCOMFORTLY NEAR, CLARIFIES OUR PERSPECTIVES. AN INSIGHT, SEVERAL DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEWS AND THE HOPE TO LOOK IN THE SAME DIRECTION.
