  3. A solitary man wanders the streets of a city, restless with indecision. As he tumbles down a rabbit hole of seedy dive bars, half deserted streets and shots of whiskey, time fractures – and it seems he might be destined to walk these streets forever.

    Shot in New York by director Laura Scrivano, A LOVESONG the first film of THE PASSION series and features actor Daniel Henshall, star of AMC’s TURN: WASHINGTON SPIES and SNOWTOWN.

    Exploring Daniel’s fascination with poetry and text and the actor’s relationship to the both script and camera, his film takes as its starting point TS Eliot’s poem The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, considered to be one of the founding texts of modernist poetry.

  4. To wake up in a tent in front of a mountain and breath a surf, to catch a big fish and watch rare birds, to climb a peak and feel oneself a viking, to get inspired by ascetic architecture of islander houses and simply ride on waves into the unknown...
    It's common that nowadays people loose their ability and will to enjoy such simple things, finding dozens of reasons and excuses.
    In our new work about unique Lofoten region "LOVE LOFOTEN" we would like to give an opportunity to look at the world through child's eyes. Without greed and new excuses. With pure vision and pure feelings.

    “Grown-ups love figures. When you describe a new friend to them, they never ask you about the important things.
    They never say:
    “What's his voice like?
    What are his favourite games?
    Does he collect butterflies?”
    Instead they demand:
    “How old is he?
    How many brothers has he?
    How much does he weigh?
    How much does his father earn?”
    Only then do they feel they know him.
    If you say to the grown-ups:
    “I've seen a lovely house made of pink brick, with geraniums in the windows and doves on the roof”,
    they are unable to picture such a house.
    You must say: “I saw a house that come a hundred thousand francs.'”
    Then they cry out: “How pretty!”

    Проснуться в палатке с видом на гору и вдохнуть запах морского прибоя, поймать большую рыбу и увидеть редких птиц, подняться на вершину и почувствовать себя викингом, вдохновится аскетичной архитектурой хижин островитян и просто идти на катере по волнам в сторону неизведанного...
    Часто в современном мире люди теряют способность и желание наслаждаться такими простыми вещами, находя десятки причин и отговорок.
    В своей новой работе об уникальных Лофотенских островах “LOVE LOFOTEN” мы хотим дать возможность человеку взглянуть на мир глазами ребенка. Без корысти и без очередных оправданий. Чистым взглядом, чистыми ощущениями.

    “Взрослые очень любят цифры. Когда рассказываешь им, что у тебя появился новый друг, они никогда не спросят о самом главном. Никогда они не скажут: «А какой у него голос? В какие игры он любит играть? Любит ли он ловить бабочек?» Они спрашивают: «Сколько ему лет? Сколько у него братьев? Сколько он весит? Сколько зарабатывает его отец?» И после этого они воображают, что узнали о человеке всё.
    Когда говоришь взрослым: «Я видел красивый дом из розового кирпича, в окнах у него герань, а на крыше голуби», — они никак не могут представить себе этот дом. Им надо сказать: «Я видел дом за сто тысяч франков», — и тогда они восклицают: «Какая красота!»
