On Children :: Kahlil Gibran - 1883-1931
And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children.
And he said:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

The Autorité de Régulation Professionnelle de la Publicité (ARPP) has ruled that this film cannot be broadcast in France because it creates “a climate of anxiety”. Is a thirty second spot of a melting car really too provocative for French TV?

CATASTROPHE ANTHEM is the second film in an ongoing body of work exploring the theme of mental health. I met Tuesday in a casting session back in 2017. A self proclaimed, self modified, Hollywood Idol. We spent a year in conversation, discussing themes of self image and the implications of social media on young people - Eventually unifying her anxiety for the future into a visual metaphor for the end of the world. Catastrophe Anthem is a siren song. A warning for a culture who value appearance over meaning.

A young black man is killed in an altercation with a vigilant neighboor and the police. An indignant crowd gathered together. The feeling of injustice is high. A group isolates itself. Emotion engenders riot .... In the absence of words, can the body take its revenge?
