Femme Erasure & Straight-Passing Privilege

A beautifully shot video that hit home for me. Amazed by the clear, yet complex and subtle script and the intimate, delicate visuals. A must-see!

Syrian Women.

“We must fight that dehumanisation, not least because to see the humanity in others, is to glimpse it within ourselves”.
On women’s day, let us remember all the Syrian refugees in Jordan, but also on our European shores, who just want to get an education and have a life. 60% of refugees are CHILDREN. Let us stop looking at them as criminals, looters and terrorists. They need our help. And we will need theirs, in due time.

EXCURSION AU VILLAGE by René Char

Orion s’éprend de la Polaire

Les amants sont inventifs dans l’inégalité ailée qui les recueille sur le matin.

Il faut cesser de parler aux décombres.

Une écriture d’échouage. Celle à laquelle on m’oppose aujourd’hui.

Paysage répété au sommet de la nuit sur qui se lève une lueur.

La brûlure du bruit. Louée soit la neige qui parvient à en éteindre la cuisson.

Les femmes sont amoureuses et les hommes sont solitaires. Ils se volent mutuellement la solitude et l’amour.

Toi qui nais appartiens à l’éclair. Tu seras pierre d’éclair aussi longtemps que l’orage empruntera ton lit pour s’enfuir.

Y a-t-il vraiment une plus grande distance entre nous et notre poussière finale qu’entre l’étoile intraitable et le regard vivant qui l’a tenue un instant sans s’y blesser ?

…Nicolas de Staël, nous laissant entrevoir son bateau imprécis et bleu, repartit pour les mers froides, celles dont il s’était approché, enfant de l’étoile polaire.
