a short list of inspiring visual poetry

being down with the cold and subsequent sinus infection turns out to be not entirely devoid of excitement.  allow me to share a brief list of wonderful video discoveries. 

if you have:

1 minute:  watch the behind the scenes from valentino's spring 2012 campaign.   feminine.  dreamy.  delightfully lacy.

10 minutes:  witness sylvie guillem be marvelous in this mats ek ballet with music by arvo part.  intimate.  expressive.  graceful.  moving.

100+ minutes:  see this extraordinary film.  castaway on the moon is the best story i've watched in a long time.  part social commentary.  part romantic adventure.  thoughtful.  visually delectable.  filled to the brim with hope.

any lovely discoveries you've made of late?
