An animation of the hexagonal storm present on Saturns’s North pole. The hexagon is 30,000 kilometers across and has constant winds of more than 300 kilometers per hour. Images acquired by the Cassini spacecraft on Dec.10, 2012.
It’s all sort of coming together. I can see it, but it isn’t genius yet. It’s strange when something is finished, and it feels much more familiar than you ever thought it would. Or ideas you thought were important that were only ever images. I still have a whole character to sort out. Also, it feels very personal. Maybe I’m embarrassed. I don’t even know why this is the story that I am choosing. Not that I have a million to choose from. It’s just what I’m interested in at the moment. You fill in all the ideas and you go “Oh, it’s me. What else did I expect?” I have a clearer picture of what I need to do, I suppose.
It’s not a Tarkovksy film. I don’t even mention Tarkovsky in fact. There is a remake of Sayat Nova with cockroaches, however. It’s more like Godard, Terayama, or maybe Marker. Also, I don’t feel qualified to say the things I say. I’m too aware of how smart I’m not. Once I have a script, I can unscript it. We’ll see.
Opening Night (1977, dir. John Cassavetes)
Your tree… a symbol of joy or a blazing death torch?
the miraculous and the monstrous are dual forces that conspire
