Weekly Photo Challenge: Future Tense

For Weekly Photo Challenge: Future Tense I take you to visit the newly opened museum. It is Museum of Karel Zeman, famouse Czech movie maker, located by the Charles bridge at Kampa Island. Karel Zeman (1970-1989) was follower and interpreteur of Jules Verne, whose works he made into movies and who was Zemam’s inspiration. Looking at all the modern movies and tricks it can be funny to see, almost like trying to compare Star Wars 4-6 to Star Wars 1-3, but you can feel the poetry and the art of old Zeman’s movies. Enjoy some short documents from youtube:

In English, but not the best quality:

I love this Karel Zeman’s quotation: “…even if the world in future is technically perfect, it needs love, it needs poetry, it needs magic …”. My shots from the museum and also short movie.

    I love that quote also. The future may be cold, frenzied, and efficient, but we must stop to enjoy beauty.
