Leaving Lethe by Elisabeth Winkler is a poem about avoiding difficult decisions and overthinking, with an introduction by the author.
“I’ve become desperate to simply go about my life without needing an explanation, to be fine realizing it’s impossible to know what’s next.”
“Amanda Palmer’s Leipzig performance felt as if she was talking with you… as a close friend [not] just about her life, but women’s lives in general, channeled into the context of the highly charged and confusing sociopolitical climate we live in today.”
Climate change is a global issue but we can do something as an individual to battle it, too. Find out the most effective steps you can take towards a better future.
If taken together and interpreted a certain way, these poems may paint the picture of an individual who is discovering that depending on external validation is a dead-end; the small moments and aspects of ourselves we learn to treasure are what matters.
A Leipzig-based Lithuanian viewer ponders the film: “[Animus Animalis] was very powerful and had a great variety of natural beauty in it. But some of its parts were truly irksome to watch or even think about.”
