The Glittering Scales
The Glittering Scales is new film for NEOQUE shot on the British Kent Coast by film-maker KENT MATHEWS and stylist ANNABEL KERMAN with Hair & MakeUp by REBECCA BROWN.
Featuring CLARE DURKIN the film explores ideas around ageing, memory and the transient nature of being, with excerpts from VIRGINIA WOOLF “A WRITER’S DIARY” read by HANNAH MELBOURN.
“I don’t believe in ageing. I believe in forever altering one’s aspect to the sun. Hence my optimism. And to alter now, cleanly and sanely , I want to shuffle off this loose living randomness: people; reviews; fame; all the glittering scales; and be withdrawn, and concentrated.”
“I will not be ‘famous’, Great. I will go on adventuring, changing, opening my mind and my eyes, refusing to be stamped and stereotyped. The thing is to free one’s self: to let it find it’s dimensions, not be impeded.”
“Now is life very solid or very shifting? I am haunted by the two contradictions. This has gone on forever; goes down to the bottom of the world— this moment I stand on. Also it is transitory, flying, diaphanous. I shall pass like a cloud on the waves. Perhaps it may be that though we change, one flying after another, so quick, so quick, yet we are somehow successive and continuous we human beings, and show the light through.”
