Default Guernsey

Directed by Nanouk Leopold

Traveling frequently between her family in Holland and her job in Egypt, international aid worker Anna begins to question her happiness when she discovers that a seemingly content coworker has committed suicide. Anna returns to Holland and secretly examines her husband’s familiar glances and gestures, wondering if anything in their apparently happy household could be other than it seems. Elegant images rather than words build the story and place the audience in the position of watching for clues along with the protagonist. Representing the Netherlands for Oscar consideration as Best Foreign Language Film, Guernsey was screened in Director’s Fortnight in the 2005 Cannes Film Festival. 2005, Netherlands/Belgium, color, 35mm, in Dutch with English subtitles, 90 minutes.

Nanouk Leopold studied directing at the Dutch Film and Television Academy and mixed-media and monumental arts at the Rotterdam Academy of Visual Arts. Her debut feature, Îles Flottantes (2001), was selected for the Rotterdam Tiger Award Competition in 2001 and was screened at many international film festivals. Guernsey is her second feature.

Default When will be known as persons
When will we all be known as persons
Classifcation is to come to understanding with the universe, since it is not finite, When will we be known toward each other as persons?

Default All of me, to all of you
Could we begin to regard each other as persons when we stop other classifications ie. "indie music" etc. (in reference to another of your postings)
Are classification always harmful or beneficial?
How can we discuss 'things' without an understanding of and some word definition to relate with each other. Is it the female gender experience that you struggle with and lack an appreciation and understanding? I'm sure there are many 'descriptors' to define and communicate your experience. Maybe I can mock them at a later time.
