Close-Up | Abbas Kiarostami | 1990. A tough film to watch. Set in Iran. A cross between documentary and reenacting for art and sanity's sake. Hated it at first, but learning to appreciate film where film is few.
[Self Portrait (Hand, 3 panels, vertical) by John Coplan] * "There’s a space at the bottom of an exhale, a little hitch between taking in and letting out that’s a perfect zero you can go into. There’s a rest point between the heart’s muscle’s close and open - an instant of keenest living when you’re momentarily dead. You can rest there." - Mary Karr
