Once Upon a Time

about “Once Upon a Time

The city of the dead, constructed by the living as a silent and still image of a restless and bustling city.

It has its houses, small, damp and dark; some more spacious and sunny; It has its individual apartments where the tranquil inhabitants crowd each other; it seems that they lack room … but no, what they lack is movement, why would you want more room?

Also this city has streets and gardens through which visitors pass, the future dead, amongst the present dead.

Dead people of all ages, with dead children and their dead dolls.

The schedule of this city is regulated so that essential work, crafts and ceremonies are arranged in a map corresponding to the firmament on that date: thus the days and nights on earth are reflected in the sky. Or conversely, the days in heaven and the nights on earth.

—-I understand well that you, that you feel part of an unchanging sky, meticulous clockwork gears, you bring nothing to your city and your habits change little. Yours is the only city that suits you, you remain motionless in time, the moving image of eternity… You have departed from time, you’re already in eternity, why would you want to change? Yes, I know, man prefers to want for nothing instead of wanting for something… but the sky, inspiring laws, cities and calendars, must be heard; maybe this is why you are so quiet?—

You deserve to be remembered for two virtues: secure in yourself, because nothing affects you, you tell me in your faces from those black and white photographs of serene gestures, even smiling; and prudence, convinced that all innovation in the city influences the design of heaven, before every decision you calculate the risks and benefits for themselves and for the whole city … and worlds.

Jamie Wimberly is a long-time poet and visual artist.  His poetry is published regularly, most recently in Haiku Journal, and he was named as one of the best poets on Twitter (@haiku_america).  Jamie is also an award-winning painter, with his work nominated for the Whitney Biennial, and exhibitions in galleries in Baltimore, Washington, DC, and New York City.  Poetry and visual arts have come together as part of the “poem video series” which entail collaborations with emerging filmmakers in an attempt to make poetry more accessible and relevant in a digital age.

Casey Stein fell into filmmaking at a very young age thanks to the influence of late 90’s skateboarding videos, and soon branched out to explore all aspects of the medium. Equal parts director and cinematographer with roots deep-seated in the arts, Casey has always been around creativity and technology and is a sponge for all things associated.

His short film, Boy on a Bike won the 7th Annual Emerging Pro contest hosted by HDVideoPro Magazine. His work has been featured in numerous festivals around the world as well The New York Times, Spin Magazine, Nowness, Fader, and NME among others.

Casey graduated NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Kanbar Institute of Film & Television and lives in Brooklyn, New York. You may spot him riding over the Williamsburg Bridge on his bike.
