Cloud Atlas, the movie - Cloud Atlas, η ταινία


Πόσες φορές έχω ξεκινήσει να γράφω για την υπέροχη ταινία Cloud Atlas, αλλά για κάποιους λόγους σταμάτησα και η ανάρτηση παρέμεινε μόνο στα χαρτιά (σαν ιδέα).

 How many times have I started writing about the wonderful Cloud Atlas movie, but for some kind of reasons I stopped and the post never made it off (as an idea) in  a blogpost and into reality.

 Η ταινία απο μόνη της αποτελεί κατά την ταπεινή μου γνώμη ένα (ακόμη) θαύμα της Βιομηχανίας του Θεάματος, που σήμερα βάλλεται και κατηγορείται για πολλά, αλλά σίγουρα δεν κατηγορείται για τα υπερ-θεάματα που μας προσφέρει.

 The film itself is, in my humble opinion, another  miracle of the Film  Industry, which is now being contemned and accused for  lots of things, but certainly not accused for the super-visions it constantly offers us.

 Σύμφωνα με την παρουσίαση στο IMDB.COM η περίληψη είναι η εξής στα αγγλικά: 

According to the IMDB.COM presentation, summary goes like this in english:

An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution. 

και απλά στα ελληνικά: 
and in simple Greek:

Μια εξερεύνηση του πως οι ενέργειες των ανεξάρτητων ζωών επηρεάζουν η μια την άλλη στο παρελθόν, παρόν και μέλλον, καθώς η μια ψυχή σχηματίζεται απο έναν δολοφόνο σε έναν ήρωα, και μια πράξη καλωσύνης διακυμαίνεται διαμέσου των αιώνων για να εμπνεύσει μια επανάσταση.


Οι παραγωγοί :  ,
καθώς και οι συγγραφείς:   (novel),   (written for the screen by) 
The Directors  , along with writers  (novel),   (written for the screen by) 

ειδικά η/ο δεύτερη/δεύτερος είναι γνωστοί απο τις ταινίες μεγαθήρια MATRIX (τριλογία), V FOR VEDETTA, SENSE8, JUPITER ASCENDING κ.α. καθώς και πλήθος γνωστών ηθοποιών όπως 

especcially the second one are well known  for their huge movies MATRIX TRILOGY, V FOR VEDETTA, SENSE8, JUPITER ASCENDING and more as well as various popular actors and actresses like:
 
Zhou Xun, Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae, Ben Whishaw, James DArcy, Keith David, David Gyasi, Susan Sarandon, Hugh Grant

προσφέρουν μια μεγάλη μεταφυσική ιδέα ή πολλές μεταφυσικές ιδέες, της μεταμψύχωσης, των αδελφών ψυχών, της συνδεσης, και του Ανώτερου Εαυτού μέσα απο μια δίωρη ψυχαγωγική δραστηριότητα.

they present us a great metaphysical idea or more ideas of reincarnation, soulmates, all connected and Higher Self through a two hours entertainment activity.





Είδες πως περνάει το  Χόλλυγουντ τις μεγάλες αλήθειες, που εμείς οι υπόλοιποι πασχίζουμε να περάσουμε στα πεπερασμένα μυαλά των ανθρώπων, και το κάνει όντως με ένα έξοχο τρόπο;

Have you noticed the way Hollywood conveys huge truths, those truths whom the rest of us are struggling to similarly convey into the finite minds of people, and they do it in an exquisite way?

Και οι ιδέες παρουσιάζονται ως μια γλαφυρή, φανταστική εικόνα/ιστορία και με ειδικά εφέ περνάνε στον εγκέφαλο μας και κατά συνέπεια στο υποσυνείδητο μας αλήθειες τις οποίες το ανθρώπινο υποσυνείδητο καταναλώνει αδιαμαρτύρητα, ενω εμείς οι υπόλοιποι πτωχοί - πλην τίμιοι - συγγραφείς δεχόμαστε πλήθος αρνήσεων, χλευασμών και υποτιμήσεων γιατί γράφουμε και λέμε ακριβώς τα ίδια!

 And the ideas  presented as a glimpse, fantastic image / story with special effects are being  passed  into our brains and consequently into our subconscious truths which the human subconscious consumes uncontrollably, while we  poor - but honest - writers receive a multitude of denials, mockings and devaluations, because we write and say exactly the same!
Βέβαια αυτό είναι μια μεγάλη ιστορία, όπως και τόσα άλλα...

 Of course this is another story, like so many others ...

Αυτό που θα ήθελα να τονίσω είναι πως πρόκειται για μια πολύ εφευρετική ταινία με εξίσου ευρηματικό  σενάριο δεμένα όλα πολύ καλά ώστε να διασκεδάσουμε και να ... εκπαιδευτούμε χωρίς να νιώσουμε κανένα ίχνος ανίας.

What I would like to emphasize is that it is a very inventive film with an equally innovative scenario all tied up too well to entertain and also train us... without feeling any trace of boredom.
Για τους λάτρεις της επιστημονικής φαντασίας μια υπέροχη ταινία χωρίς πολλά σχόλια...

 For lovers of science fiction it's a wonderful movie without further  comments ...

Το μονοπάτι της αναζήτησης της κρυμμένης πνευματικοτητας


*Φωτογράφηση απο την Κατερίνα Κωστάκη
Φωτο: Ακρόπολη, άποψη απο την Αρχαία Αγορά

Στα χρόνια που ακολουθούν, οι πλέον κερδισμένοι θα είναι όσοι θα βαδίσουν το μονοπάτι της αναζήτησης της κρυμμένης πνευματικοτητας.
Οσο για τους υπόλοιπους...θα τους φάει η σκόνη της παρηκμασμενης  πραγματικοτητας, που δεν αναγνωρίζει ούτε ταυτότητες, ούτε αξιώματα, ούτε πλούτη.
Στο τέλος οι επιπλαστες επιδιώξεις και οι κυνηγοί τους  θα προσκυνήσουν τους ονειροπόλους που συνέχισαν παρά τις αντιξοότητες να λειτουργούν με το κέντρο της καρδιάς τους αντί με το εγώ τους.

My Publications, an Experiential Pathway of Pursuit and Evolution




It has been many many years since I’ve been  dreaming of seeing  my books standing  out in something quite  larger than a single bookstore in Athens.

I remember sitting next to my computer, I guess it was 2008, admiring books being presented at Amazon.

In the eyes of a new emerging writer it looked like an uncatchable dream, since there was no  goodwill  counselor or  referral to offer  me the slightest information.

A moment  whereas  my brand first novel  and first book as well  had already been published (I have published 6 books up to date) entitled "The Life Journey That Carries Hopes-GreekEdition" by a small publishing house in the center of Athens in the beginning of  2008.

In the following days this  book stood out  in the shop window of the Bookstore of Hestia in Solonos Str. (Athens-Greece) for two weeks.

Since then, the little sunshine in my publishing pathway and in a  period  that seems to be innumerable  light years away, I have so far traveled a particularly surrealistic destination in a long distance with  literally “bloody”  hands and legs in the bumpy road of Greek reality.

 I wrote plenty of Books and published lots of them, but never saw them again standing out in a shop window of a Bookstore.


Obviously my karmic (and not only) ribbons with publishers and booksellers did not allow me to enter the Avaton (1) of the good polished glass windows.

This, of course, had nothing to do with my creative writing and my work, for those who have been reading  my writings have but only good words to utter.

My writing was enormously beloved by foreign readers rather  than by Greeks, since I foreknew  and  translated my texts and to published them on the internet into English language.





So, a morning  in 2010 I met with Xlibris Publications, which published my third and first English book entitled  Cosmic Light (December 2010).

It's a milestone, because on this single day I hopelessly comprehended that my country generates  talents, but  chokes or consumes them alike Saturn (Cronus),  and the only way out and writer’s refugee  is abroad.

Being accepted abroad was a triumph, and became  the opportunity to become more acknowledgeable both abroad and within Greece, because only then Greeks started showing  some interest in my creative writing.

Nevertheless, with three books as dowry, one of which  as an English published book, a new network, Academy of Inner Light, dozens of articles, poems and public speeches, the road still remained abnormal.

Then I chose to publish a few  books as e-books in self publishing platforms, until 2015 when  I published my  book Cosmic Romances (Greek language, Athens-Greece).

 What I would like  to emphasize after all is the fact that  I had faced up many opportunities to give it up.



But I kept dreaming and imagining that one day  my books along with me (as an author) would be showing up in the pedestal of a larger advertising platform than that of the  plain Internet or a single bookstore (in which were never placed).

This event eventually happened this May (2017).

My decision to starting  learning, to getting  to know the cosmos of self-publishing along with  the assistance of friends from abroad (again) addressed me to Createspace and Amazon.

Now … how did  I get up  there is a truly a sequence of ... synchronicities!

An e- mail and a following question posted in a Global Facebook group on digital marketing, publishing and promoting books abroad encouraged me or rather gave me the impetus to make the decision to transfer my each one of my books out  of Greece.

Left  to my own devices  had I already created and installed my blogs and my previous website outside of Greece.

Today along with my books, I implemented on my own a brand new interactive and responsive website in English language, where visitor could easily discover  my books and purchase  them through Amazon.

What deeply shocked me is that whereas  indifference and refusal to offer help my compatriots showed me over the years, three times three help  received from friends around the Globe.

Only in one of my question on books in this over mentioned  foreign group I received more than  200, 99, 99%,  encouragingly comments.

They were all  accompanied  with information and relative links directing me to  publishing services, illustration, copyright, and various  websites by fellow writers and poets residing in foreign countries.

Writers even from Hollywood without any feeling of competition and selfishness gave me directions and encouragement.

A man may say full sooth [the truth] in game and play.(2)

Yesterday (27-09-2017)  also uploaded the last of my earlier published books Cosmic Romances entitled "Cosmic Romances" (Sympantika Idyllia) on Amazon.

The journey, however, never stops, but this is a bright new beginning for me and my published work.

And a sense of fullness and gratitude because at least not last my dreams are realized, even through  dozens of delays.

Everything is a matter of decision and free will.

WHILE ... YOU CAN REALIZE YOUR DREAMS FOR IT IS MEANT TO BE!
