In this film I really want to practice what I preach on my Website ! I want to learn to let go. Not direct as much as allow the film to grow. Like a gardener.
For who says I am right, and who says that what happens is what I decide to happen. If I am right in my feeling that every event has it’s own manifestation, quite separate from my actions, then I must just do what I have to without imposing myself.
Funny though, everyone looks to a Director to be decisive. And what I am asking myself is allow control to slip out of the fingers of my conscious mind into the very elasic safety net of my subconscious. I hope I am not running into trouble, but have to make a film through my own belief system.
I have managed, quite unknowingly, to turn Elizabeth’s story into the story that most reverberates in my own heart. The battle between our mortal and Divine selves. Those of you that have looked at Hindu philosophy, it is all about the raising of your Chakras.
Oh, well. There is so much I want to say with this film, and I know that I cannot say it by being absolutely in control. So I might as well let go. The one thing I do know though. I do nto want to make a definitive film. One that seems to, like a Hollywood film, have alll the answers in a neat package tied up with a ribbon (sorry, I am being unfair to other Directors in my own arrogance), but a film that has only questions.
I think Elizabeth survives only because the film raised more questions than it answered,
Love to u all, pray I do nto stumble in my journey too hard (for stumble I will),
