The Flower of Love is a short film directed by brooklyn based artist Angelina Dreem and shot on film by Aurora Halal presented exclusively by Pas Un Autre. Recalling the underground 8mm films from the 1960s, The Flower of Love is "a love story, of human frivolity. To be and to conceive; to will and to believe, in Love."
Eras end, Begin again. Money, lovers, Promises are pretend. 30 is old age -- You plan to kill yourself, Or be far away by then. Try so hard To make a name, But they forget Again and again. Change your mind, Change your style, Your politics, philosophy. A punk, a hippie, A model on the cover of a magazine. Alone or lonely, '91 or '65 A better story. Your Gods are dead, And Jesus ain’t your friend. No one calls. Connection's gone. Looking for the other, Floating past each other, Duck and cover. Empty-headed, absent-minded Lost forever, we are blinded. What it means to hold a hand, What it means to be free,
What it is to see beyond The illusion of reality.
