Each year the holiday season sets like a soft warm cloud on the western world, we get sentimental and with full bellies indulge in doing nothing all day the latest by 26th of December. It reminds me the feeling you get when sleeping in cinemas. A much practiced hobby of mine described better in one of my favourite Lieblings posts here. And, yes, I am shooting movies for a living. Still, a bit of doing nothing and living in a cloud in cinemas or real life can’t hurt anybody, no?
It creates fresh unused brainspace for exploring.
Having shot the trailer last year in Israel, I will go in production for a documentary about this freedom to use your brain. The film is called Doing Nothing All Day. It’s a movie about democratic education. Check their homepage, have a peek in to their great Super8 participation project which will be part of the finished film.
