Matinee: 'Memories' Share This on LinkedIn   Tweet This   Forward This

16 November 2019

Saturday matinees long ago let us escape from the ordinary world to the island of the Swiss Family Robinson or the mutinous decks of the Bounty. Why not, we thought, escape the usual fare here with Saturday matinees of our favorite photography films?

So we're pleased to present the 228th in our series of Saturday matinees today: Memories.

Tim Neiser directed this 1:12 short about a young photographer who, searching for his place in this world, travels to a country he has only known in postcards.

The liner notes sum it up:

Today we are caught up in our everyday life and think far too little about the important things. The short film Memories shows a young photographer who makes a wonderful discovery on his trip through Japan. Its a journey through old memories, collecting new experiences and learning to just enjoy those little moments.

What the young photographer discovers he relays to the person who sent him the postcards in a phone message.

"You become what you've seen," he says, "and sharing that with the people you love is what makes life worth living."

Which, after all, is precisely what we do, whether we are young photographers or older ones.
