kaydeefalls: prudence laughing in the sunshine: "won't you come out to play" (dear prudence)

Final festivid for the year. This one I just couldn't resist. I like reading through my friends' Dear Festividder letters, and I'd very much hoped to be matched on Cloud Atlas as my Festivids fandom, so when one of my very favorite vidders made a very lovely request for that fandom, I had to make it happen.

Again, I realize that the Vienna Teng kinda made it obviously one of mine. I don't even care. [personal profile] such_heights loves Vienna Teng even more than I do. It had to happen.

I know this movie has some problematic elements, but the overarching themes are gorgeous, and I love the book as well, and the cinematography is just too pretty not to vid.

there’ll be a fire burning
in the temple of our peace
there’ll be a soaring voice for our silent pleas
we will hold our broken circle and begin to pray
we will find a black and white in the gray

and we will be as one god
and we will be as one people

we will find illumination in unnatural light
you will travel a thousand miles without leaving my sight
we will find we never knew hatred ran so deep
such a wide, wide chasm of faith to leap

but we will be as one god
and we will be as one people

there will be an evolution of the human soul
we will know that be a part is to be truly whole
we will know the pattern of centuries rise and fall
we will know that the fate of one is the fate of all

and we will be as one god
and we will be as one people

I love this vid! The music choice was so perfect for the film and I enjoyed the way you built the relationships throughout. I will watch this a thousand times! It's wonderful.

I really love this vid - it makes me cry every time, but it's a good cry :) I found the first 3/4 of the film almost unbearable dark, but this vid does such an excellent job of weaving together all the events from the perspective of the last 1/4 where things start to come together and feel more hopeful. Thank you!

I was also hoping to include this vid in a vidshow I'm organizing at the University of Hawai'i this fall for the conference "Creating Futures Rooted in Wonder: Bridges between Indigenous, Science Fiction, and Fairy Tale Studies." I would like your permission to include it in my vidshow (and I'll try not to cry at the conference!).

A little about me - I'm a fan and academic - I've been in fandom since about 1994, and started publishing on fandom in 2003. I'm about to start a new job in the media studies department at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands, and in the past I've taught in departments of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. I specialize in queer theory, fan cultures, and transmedia. You can find me as blacksquirrel on twitter, LJ, DW, and Ao3.

Let me know if you want any more info about me or the event!

Exactly! Btw - do you have an opinion on whether karma determines people's next lives in Cloud Atlas? I feel like there is some kind of accumulation of positive and negative energy around each character which increases over lifetimes, or can be changed with suffering and good deeds. But that's just my pet theory :)

Thank you, thank you! I'm so excited to include it in the show.
