The cinematography that changed cinema

This is a celebration of cinema. More specifically, this is a celebration on the many wonderful looks that cinema has. The many faces it wears to greet us and the many unique and poetic ways it shows us where beauty may reside.

We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time

in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infinitesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future. We have no present. Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation. We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality. We confuse the world as talked about, described, and measured with the world which actually is. We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas.

—Alan Watts

Freetown Christiana

In 1971 residents of Copenhagen took over a 84 acre section of the city, turning it into an independent intentional community. It remained legally independent until 2013.

The objective of Christiania is to create a self-governing society whereby each and every individual holds themselves responsible over the well-being of the entire community. Our society is to be economically self-sustaining and, as such, our aspiration is to be steadfast in our conviction that psychological and physical destitution can be averted.
