Inspirations !


Portrait of J.Bronowski

All creative art is magic, is evocation of the unseen in forms persuasive, enlightening, familiar and surprising, for the edification of mankind, pinned down by the conditions of its existence to the earnest consideration of the most insignificant tides of reality.

Henry James — An Appreciation (1905) is a work by Joseph Conrad.

    Nice site! Loved Baran, the movie. You should see the other movies by the director Majid Majidi; you will love them: Children of God; and Color of Heave (I may have the words transposed) :-)

    I was introduced to Majid Majidi films by a dear friend “Nimesh” exceptionally knowledgeable film connoisseur and gifted photographer , who studied at La Femis

    He can also give a discourse on Abbas Kiarostami, Samira Makhamalbaf and her father Mohsen Makhamalbaf…
