“I just want to make music”

Electrifying images and sounds from Jimi Hendrix last night at the FIFA, International Festival of Films on Art. The documentary is a biography about his short but intense life. Too much to say but not finding the words to express it. This short video will give you a glimpse of it. I’m sure he’s going to be present in my mind and my heart the coming days.

 

 

There will be one more screening. Go if you can! Here are the details in the Fifa website

What do you want – Gotye

Which one do you prefer? This?

 

 

Or this one?

 

 

The fact is that number 1 is the official video of the song What Do You Want of Gotye, the australian singer that got famous thanks to the song Somebody That I Used t Know. And number 2 is the video that Jacob Simkin and I made for him in 2007 before he became so famous. Unfortunately Wally decided that it wasn’t exactly what he was looking for. Anyway, I’m very proud of having taken part of such a production. Gotye is the soundtrack of my most happy moments in Australia. Thank you Wally.

The Happy NOT Story

thehappynotstory

 

The shortest story I’ve ever read. Restaurants can be boring for kids and more when your parents are chatting about adults stuff with their friends. But this 5 year old little girl shows us that there’s no limit to creativity. A napkin, a pen and imagination! She’s a genius, even if the ending of the story was kind of tragic.

The Clock 3

 

The Clock 2

 

Last night was the celebration of the Nuit Blanche de Montréal. It’s the closing event of the Festival Montréal en Lumière. For a moment I forgot I was in the cold  canadian winter with silent, white and empty streets. In this special night, the city of Montreal wakes up and opens the doors of their most recognized museums and galleries to share all the culture and art with the public. There was too much to see and I had limited time to see everything, I wanted to see la crème de la crème. A coincidence made me stay in the best place I could ever be: the 24-hour screening of the film The Clock of Christian Marclay.

The Clock (2010) is a movie made entirely from other movies in which the showed screen time corresponds precisely to the actual time of the screening with plenty of clock  shots in each scene. A mind-blowing experience and winner of The Golden Lion!

I highly recommend to spend at least a couple of hours to have this new experience. This is the link to the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal with all the informations.

 

And here is a quick link where I tested my dancing skills during the Festival Montréal en Lumière. Enjoy it!
