Contemplative sorrow: that’s the kind that is willing to learn the trouble of its times in a way that principled anxiety is not. As without so within, the ancients said. In the West we’ve lived long enough – too long – apart from all that grants us our life. Wish and hope and scheme as we might, consequence will now be our truer companion.  Consequence: the midwife of a real elderhood. Awakening in such a time comes with a sob, not a sigh.

We might yet craft an eloquence that serves the terrible beauty we are about to bequeath to younger people. This is an afternoon where you could trade faith for a strange love of life, one that befriends the darkening sky by learning it. It is an afternoon where you might trade longing for belonging.

Short films, shot & directed by Ian Mackenzie.
