Stonehenge embodies my vision for Cinemashrink, a mythic symbol of doorways both real and imaginary to understanding and perceiving the depth and diversity of human life on earth.
The stones are thought to come out of Africa, transported by Merlin, storied by Arthurian legends, steeped in Druid rituals, and situated like an astronomer’s instrument on high ground eyeing the universe and beyond.
I call upon Shakespeare for the term “Art Magicke” to tie Stonehenge and film together. Both bring art and technology together to create visions of inestimable value to the pursuit of our fullest and most picturesque grasp of reality.
W.B. Yeats wrote of Stonehenge as “a bag of dreams”. Close enough to film for me.
