“Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.” -Ingmar Bergman
The voices of our friends were muffled as we shut the door behind us. The glaze of another Hollywood sunset tickled through the curtains and danced a slow waltz through the room. I sat on the cozy cream comforter and stayed close to the edge. As the video began to play, I found myself sighing with relief and feeling the overwhelming sense of home.
Without words, Susan Kemp’s (http://vimeo.com/susankemp) video for the band Owenstone captured a feeling, a moment, a time…life in Los Angeles. You can feel the conversations in the bars in Silverlake, hear the soft glimmer of the sunrise in Griffith Park, and know that wherever it is, there you are. Because only a true artist can evoke emotions and tell a story without the audience even realizing that that is happening, and Susan Kemp that is exactly what you are.
