To my dearest cinema,
I love you. You are so wonderful.
I love the way you play with light. Shadow, colour, grainy, lush – you’re so adventurous, you try it all and it delights my senses.
You’re always there for me when I feel lonely and broken, but also when I want to celebrate life’s riches. Thanks friend.
I love how you make even grim reality look beautiful. With your close-ups and framing, you make me look more closely and realise the value of tiny things, things that seemed insignificant until I saw them through your lens.
There are times when you broke my heart, but I can’t stay away from you. You can be so surprising, I never know what you’re going to do next.
Cinema, I love you. I’m so glad I found you.
