Backstage at the cinema

Backstage at the cinema

“Weary wind, who wanderest
Like the world’s rejected guest
Hast thou still some secret nest
On the tree or billow?”

(P.B. Shelley in Tell me thou wanderers)
Montegnée (B)

Have a seat and drink with me

Have a seat and drink with me
“I have had my Seat on the Self-poised One,
I have drunk of the Cup of the Ineffable,
I have found the Key of the Mystery,
I have reached the Root of Union.
Travelling by no track, I have come to the Sorrowless Land: very
easily has the mercy of the great Lord come upon me.”

(R.Tagore in Songs of Kabir)

Maison du Peuple

Maison du Peuple

“Heureux le peuple, á ses serments fidèle,
Qui sans combats vit consacrer ses droits!
La Liberté jamais ne fut si belle
Qu’en descendant du marchepied des Rois.”

(Th. Gounet in Chant guerrier)
Liège-Montegnée (B)

A heavy curtain

A heavy curtain

“But – after love what comes?
A scene that lours,
A few sad vacant hours,
And then, the Curtain.”

(Th. Hardy in He abjures love)

Le Cinéma

“Si nous étions des Artistes
Nous ne dirions pas le cinéma
Nous dirions le ciné

Mais si nous étions de vieux professeurs de province
Nous ne dirions ni ciné ni cinéma
Mais cinématographe

Aussi mon Dieu faut-il avoir du goût.”

(G. Apollinaire in Avant le Cinéma)
