Невероятно авангардный клип на песню “Яблочко” 1946. “Союздетфильм” (это киностудия им. Горького с 1948). Я не понимал, почему такая необычная форма могла существовать во времена жёсткого контроля формы в искусстве. Теперь мне объяснили – это учебное пособие для операторского факультета по комбинированным съёмкам. Оператор Михаил Кириллов – который был оператором фильма “Окраина” 1933г. (режиссёр Борис Барнет) – культовый фильм для киношников всего мира. (отмечен в Венеции в 1934 году).

I’ve always loved Da Silva’s 2012 short “Julian”… so romantic, sad and dreamy. Julian is a 30-year-old French-speaking Swiss guy from Geneva. He and António had a summer fling in 2011. António took his Super 8 camera out and started filming.

ANTONIO DA SILVA FILMS: At a public car park a hidden camera captures sexual interactions between men. Cars can be seen parked or slowly moving around with drivers ready to sexually engage with others. This is a refuge for men with diversity of age, physical attributes, marital and social status. These men take a break from their daily lives and put into practice some of their innermost desires and fantasies.
This place is no longer available for cruising but during its glory days it used to be one of the busiest cruising areas located at the Jamor National Stadium near Lisbon, Portugal. The park was never empty and activities continued from morning to evening hours.
What is “Dogging”?
Dogging (coming form British slang) is when people meet up in car parks and watch each other having sex. A similar behavior seen in dogs. Sometimes people join in but it is mainly about watching and getting off on it.
This documentary short film was made in collaboration with Miguel Arroja who had been capturing action on camera since 2001. After he saw my work he wanted to share his precious footage with me. I was impressed with the activities at the place. I went there in 2013 to experience it myself and do more filming.

“I don’t know what to tell you. A statement is easy, and here it is: Be yourself. Try to matter. Be a good friend. Love freely, even if you are likely–almost guaranteed–to be hurt, betrayed. Do what you were created to do. You’ll know what this is, because it is what you keep creeping up to, peering at, dreaming of. Do it. If you don’t, you’ll be punching clocks and eating time doing precisely what you shouldn’t, and you’ll become mean and you’ll seek to punish any and all who appear the slightest bit happy, the slightest bit comfortable in their own skin, the slightest bit smart. Cruelty is a drug, as well, and it’s all around us. Don’t imbibe.”- Tennessee Williams

THE MODERNIST JOURNALS PROJECT: From: Wendy and Gordon Hawksley: William Bruce Ellis Ranken was born in Edinburgh in 1881, the second son of Robert Burt Ranken, a prosperous lawyer, and his wife Mary. He was educated at Eton and The Slade School of Art under Henry Tonks. He had his first one man exhibition at the Carfax Gallery, London in 1904, a gallery much favoured by Sargent at that time. Moving in the circles of Edwardian aesthetes, it is known that he was well acquainted with Sargent by 1908 and Wilfrid Gabriel de Glehn.
By 1914 he was living at 14 Cheltenham Terrace, Chelsea, a couple of minutes walk away from Sargent’s studio in Tite Street. Unable to serve in the First World War due the effects of childhood polio, he subsequently went to America on a commission through Sargent. He had his first one man exhibition there in January 1916 at the Doll & Richards Gallery, Boston. Sargent introduced him to Isabella Stewart Gardner who acquired his watercolour ‘In a Turkish Garden’. Later that same year he had a one man exhibition at the Galleries of M Knoedler & Co in New York and by this time had had commissions by other prominent Americans such as the Vanderbilts, Whitneys and Havemeyers, probably due to introductions effected by Sargent.

Having grown up in the middle of no where, public transportation is a fascinating environment for me. The NYC subway is a constant buzz of all types of people in a hurry. I love sitting on a train and seeing a Wall Street type sitting next to a mother and her three kids, next to someone who appears to be Marilyn Manson, next to a gaggle of gays, next to a nun who’s trying not to pay attention to the two teenagers making out on the other side of her. It’s weird and awesome. After living here and using the subway for a while what now seems even more bizarre than riding in these super crowded, diverse masses by day is the rare moment of seeing that same train car completely empty. How do you behave when no one is around? And what do you do when your new found privacy is invaded?
