Sorry but I already forgot who posted this anecdote:
<Crossing Waterloo bridge in 1979 on the way to Film London at the NFT,
filmmaker Giovanni Martedi stopped, picked up a piece of broken glass,
directed sunlight on to the wall of the bridge and said "see, cinema is not
so big, cinema is tiny".>
But I loved that, it stayed with me all day and into my dream that night-- so thanks!
I had not heard of Giovanni Martedi before and a cursory search led me to a blog reporting on an awesome film series at Arsenal in Berlin last year that I wish I was at, called HARDFILMS: Pixels and Celluloid. Kudos to whoever organized those shows, keen curating ...
Nice, random, life.
