Ilha Formosa Taiwan Where Mountains Meet the Sea (2008)

Some stills from this short (40-min) documentary, with no spoken language, only music.
OK, I lied, it's image-heavy. Some stills have subs with explanation what is shown. I kept some, because so little is known about this small country.
See, China, what did I do here?

Volcanoes - The Fires of Creation (2018)


This was a short documentary, with annoying narration. That's why I am weary of docus that are shown on some festivals etc. because they are so personal. And I don't care about it. Give me numbers, data, facts. I grew up with nature documentaries where sir Attenborough was giving the info on how long the flamingos' legs are. I want to learn something and it's not how the narrator felt, or pondering on flying bag as the meaning of life.
But oh well, some screenshots are nice.

Saturday Poetry Corner 67: Les Malades


Today, a poem by Emile Verhaeren (1855–1916), a Belgian poet. 

I have to admit, I adore the metrum of French verses and the English translation, although good, pales with it.

[Movies Review] DPRK Movies, Or How Great Is Our General!

The first 10 movies I will be presenting here, were completely random, maybe except for "The Flower Girl". I just watched what generator actually shown. That's why those are movies mainly from the 80s and 90s. With the next 10, I will try to be more selective (maybe Bulgasari, who knows), however I don't promise I will watch "The Sea of Blood" once again.
OK, let's parachute into the arms of a... tractor driver.
