Ceramic dishes by Szilvia Vihriälä in Finland. “I live in Finland but in my heart I’m still a crazy Hungarian…I don´t really know where my HOME is…maybe that’s why I’m obsessed with tiny ceramic houses…”

directingfilm:

Film as dream, film as music. No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight room of the soul. A little twitch in our optic nerve, a shock effect: twenty-four illuminated frames a second, darkness in between, the optic nerve incapable of registering darkness. At the editing table, when I run the strip of film through, frame by frame, I still feel that dizzy sense of magic of my childhood: in the darkness of the wardrobe, I slowly wind on one frame after another, see the almost imperceptible changes, wind faster—a movement.

~ Ingmar Bergman
