A paradox of lightness and heaviness. Rembrandt is a film nursed-out over time w/ friends. It is infused with love and wisdom. All luminous lives are absorbed back into the solar One. The film begins w/ a recited / cited text pertaining to Rembrandt's insight into the finitude-strengthening concept of the infinite. Jost leaves us w/ death, life after death (as it is), and discovers a glorious analogue for laughter.
A little correction on the bio up there - three weeks ago I quit my job as professor at Yonsei. So I am back to the far more familiar realm of unemployed, scrambling to cover the minimalist needs. Anyone who can offer a workshop/screening (or buy a DVD) see www.jon-jost.com to contact. Or check out blogs www.cinemaelectronica.wordpress.com and www.jonjost.wordpress.com
