MAN / WOMAN

Janis Joplin on Rejection - an animation
"In my insides, it really hurts if someone doesn't like me. It's silly." - Janis Joplin
(YouTube)
"Village Voice journalist and radio personality Howard Smith interviewed Janis Joplin by phone on September 30, 1970.
No one knew it would be her last interview, and four days later, the 27-year-old singer was dead. Now PBS Digital Studios presents that short interview in animated form.
Joplin talks about seeking approval and dealing with criticism, particularly from the feminist press, which oddly belittled her accomplishments.
Even groundbreaking pioneers want to be loved."

Edward HOPPER

Hopper, la bande annonce
(grandpalais.fr)
"There is a certain fear and anxiety
in the things that one sees

I’m after ME

Trees look like theatre at night.
It’s all cerebral invention

The loneliness thing is overdone

Freud says the devil is a woman
They are entirely human

I think it will come true,
But no one can tell when"
