On The Real Film’s Video Portrait: Project Onward
Chicago-based film production company On The Real Film creates another fascinating video portrait that brings awareness to an amazing organization, Project Onward. Project Onward serves as a studio program for artists 18 and older living with mental and/or developmental disabilities. By providing the work space, art materials, guidance, and sales opportunities, Project Onward does more then just provide the tools to create art. Project Onward gives confidence, pride, and self worth to these talented individuals. Artists of Project Onward are able to interact with buyers and see their work come to life on display.

Cle Cle loves poetry… Maybe not reading it, but it’s at least her favorite cuddling material.
I nabbed this book from Half Price a few months ago. Anything with “dreams” followed by a question mark is going to make me hand over 5 dollars to read more. So far, Evelyn Lau, who at the time was 21 when publishing this book, has filled “Oedipal Dreams?” with observations of her subconscious confusion. In between references and facetious jabs at Mr. “Everything is Not-So-Secretly About Sex” Sigmund Freud, Lau inserts on-point imagery with lines such as:
“Asleep in the bathtub, head bent heavy on the rim/
black hair snaking in a tweedy rip down her shoulder”
