Groundcherry Kiss (2014)

“It’s a real couple and there’s no denying the intensity between them”

Director: Director Lisa Rovner’s delectable tryst for The GourmandGroundcherry Kiss was born out of my memory of Funeral Parade of Roses, a Japanese film by Toshio Matsumoto set in 1960s gay countercultural Tokyo. There’s one scene where it’s just a couple kissing—I’d seen it years ago and it really stuck with me. I loved the camera work, the camera as witness. I also loved working within the constraints of 16mm film. We only had 11 minutes to play with, only 11 minutes to get it right. No special effects here. It just is what it is. is a visual collection of Art stories: 
Photo, Cinema, ShortArt.s, Dance

At the beginning it was the idea of building a small arts library. Then, little by little, the commitment to share it.
Choice, preference, ignorance, evidence, all assumed.
A desire to discover, an encouragement to remember. Sometimes.
