A Solitary World: A Breathtaking Homage to H.G. Wells from a New Genre of Cinematic Poetry

A Solitary World: A Breathtaking Homage to H.G. Wells from a New Genre of Cinematic Poetry | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

A Solitary World — a breathtaking homage to H.G. Wells, with text adapted from five of his most celebrated works: The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), The First Men in the Moon (1901), In The Days of the Comet (1906), The World Set Free (1914). Read by Terry Burns and featuring an appropriately haunting score from the young British composer Lennert Busch, the film belongs to — pioneers, perhaps — an emerging creative genre: the cinematic poem.

Beautifully powerful and haunting. A possible project arena for students, a way to share powerful images from literature, science, studies of social sciences, life.

David Collet's curator insight, March 4, 2014 9:28 PM

This is an unusual one. But I really enjoy reading the works of H.G. Wells and upon viewing this, I felt it kept to the quality of that author.

 

Enjoy.

Roger Ellman's curator insight, March 5, 2014 6:27 AM

OK. So is this Progress?  Are Humans Moving Forward?

Well - art, creativity and idea-innovation are all part of that. So in the loose and all-embracing way we love, the sanswer is yes!
