Charles Bukowski/Nirvana

Charles Bukowski's poem 'Nirvana'. Short film directed by Patrick Biesemans. Links here and here (more also on the 2011 kickstarter).

"The film has the slow, meditative pacing of a Terrence Malick film, the same kind of obsessive dwelling on the details of a lost mid-century America.

An apple pie, the slow-motion sway of the leggy waitress’ sky-blue dress as she walks toward a snow-covered window - none of these details bear the slightest trace of kitsch.

Instead they are objects of wabi sabi, the Japanese term for impermanence. Nirvana is forever, life is temporary." [<<<link]
