You were born
naked on a frozen sea,
and you sank / and I saw
to the bottom of the endless dream / the world is an endless dream.
A small experimental video poetry shot for the DVinfo.net charity challenge.
A person lost is searching for himself and reality is defined only by the brief perspective of the moment. Stuff usually overlooked in daily life. Every dream character is a representative of the Self. And the Self itself is also being dreamed for it is a process (psyche).
Music by BlackBox.

A sci-fi set in a post-apocalypse future Latvia. After the nuclear war things are starting to get better, but an evil cult still makes people believe that the world is contaminated and thus keeping control over the population.
But there are still free people and cannibals left free in the wastelands. And two of these are the unlikely ones to set the people controlled by the cult free.
Pēc bumbām krita sienas or “After the bombs fell the walls” is a film made in film studies.
Shot mostly in two days in May 2009 with more than two dozen people it was fun and maddening.
In the process we learned a lot about creating films, especially the organisation part.
The itself film is quite terrible though!
Over the last two years we together with my friend Mārtiņš have made 10* unofficial ads for a local Latvian beer “Bocmaņa alus”.
They’re not professional in any way, just made for the fun of it, and we always have lots of fun with them. You can see them @ YouTube
* There is actually one more, but it awaits for a special occasion to release it. Stay tuned!
Filmed as a joke during shooting the “Dream Lover”. Enjoy!
The blue is taken from a satellite photo of Earth. Blue, because the largest portion of our planet is covered by ocean, and it is neutral, because no continent is emphasised.
The three lines symbolize that our planet is third from the central star, and the green symbolizes life.
The yellow half-circle is the Sun (the colour taken from an actual image of the Sun). Energy flows from it to all planets of the Solar system, which is symbolized by the horizontal line, which comes from its centre.
p.s. If you turn the image by 90 degrees, you see a stylized flower.
