Clive Owen and Juliette Brioche play two school teachers. They have their own problems, but daily they inspire their students. The film was made in Vancouver, Canada-shout out to Sherry, who lives there. It is suggested in the film, they are in my state of Maine. The premise is words vs art. Two teachers begin a playful taunt that leads to the school taking sides...what is more meaningful words or art? The English teacher recites beautiful lines in the English language-the Art teacher states the obvious.
"A picture is worth a thousand words." *****
These days I actually prefer Indie flicks. I love the quirky real life feel and how people deal with their gifts and obstacles. Lately, I am disappointed with the big box office flicks-that make me feel like I have wasted my time and money. I know not all big blockbusters do this-but many do.
So, your challenge is to combine words and art. For the art part-I want you to pen a poem about a piece of art that moves us. It can be something famous, something a child made for you or a loved one, or it can be a carved bar of soap. It just has to move you in a profound way. Your poem will gives us insight to the 'why'! Please give credit to the artist-you have selected.
For the word part-I want a quote that reflects a sentiment of the art. I mean if you really can't find one think of Mary Oliver's "Instructions for Life: Pay Attention. Be astonished. Tell about it."
I look forward to your poetic penned Masterpieces~
