Returning from the park this morning, we crossed the street to the corner that is home to one of the three the halfway houses in the neighborhood. A middle aged man covered in baby blue denim and a trenchcoat white t-shirt sat on the fire hydrant, talking to Charlie.

—Hey big dog, you a friendly big dog?

And Charlie of course sought the attention.

—Oh you’re a nice guy. You know I’m a nice guy, too, don’t you now? Oh yes you do.

He started to scratch Charlie in Charlie’s favorite spot, the rump.

—Oh, now that’s where it’s at. I can tell that. Yeah… Hey, thanks man. Thanks for bringing him over here, letting me pet him.

I told the man, We’re neighbors, boss. And we bumped fists.

You don’t adapt novels but rather the enduring sensation that they leave you with. There’s one thing that people rarely talk about and yet is vital in our lives: dreaming. I don’t mean night dreams but daydreams. They are man’s best companion, wonders of existence. Thoughts often travel through them and then settle. Reading also does this: the eyes leave the page for a second and we’re off on a thousand journeys, a thousand projects. That said, a film isn’t a dream.
But at the origins of a film, there is this feeling, like ‘déjà-vu’, like ‘a memory of the present’.
Then, through the writing and shooting stages, you investigate this feeling of ‘déjà-vu’.

- Jacques Rivette, from “Texts and Interviews” (edited by Jonathan Rosenbaum)

“ The best Ashberry poems, I thought, although not in these words, describe what it’s like to read an Ashberry poem; his poems refer to how their reference evanesces. And when you read about your reading in the time of your reading, mediacy is experienced immediately. It is as though the actual Ashberry poem were concealed from you, written on the other side of a mirrored surface, and you saw only the reflection of your reading. But by reflecting your reading, Ashberry’s poems allow you to attend to your attention, to experience your experience, thereby enabling a strange kind of presence. But it is a presence that keeps the virtual possibilities of poetry intact because the true poem remains beyond you, inscribed on the far side of the mirror: “You have it but you don’t have it. / You miss it, it misses you. / You miss each other. ”

“ A film by the Straubs is always a way of placing bodies that recite texts in a space; bodies, texts and spaces being almost inseparable. ”
