The alchemists say that nothing can be created if you do not put the lid on the pot. Things have to heat up. I think about this when I think about solitude and creation. Solitude is like heating up; like putting the lid on the pot.

Tomorrow (Saturday 9th) is the first U.S. screening of painter and filmmaker Margaux Wiliamson’s film Teenager Hamlet. This “constructed reality” movie is about the tension between the Hamlets of the world (who worry about what’s a worthy action to take in life) and the Ophelias (who have faith in the redemptive power of beauty). 
It is the companion piece to Believer editor Sheila Heti’s book, How Should a Person Be? Both the book and the movie were created between 2006 and 2012 and feature many of the same people.
Please come! $9 suggested donation. 7:30 PM at UnionDocs (322 Union Ave., Williamsburg, Brooklyn).
