'If you are born into the artists tribe you have to be faithful to the artists vision...'
Lawrence Durrell via Roger Housden.
I would add : if you are born into the artists tribe, you don't have a choice, you have to create.
'Inspire others to question how we live...art is a process of spiritual awakening.'
This is part of the essence of Shifra's story.
'The secret of Life is to have a task, something you devote your entire life to, something you bring everything to, every minute of every day for your whole life. And the most important thing is it must be something you cannot possibly do.'
Henry Moore, Sculptor.
I'm challenged in some ways by the last quote. Are you ?
But, it's rich material for a film story. Shifa's artistic life after the abduction of her precious baby becomes obsessive and solitary, until she starts her new life in Bolivia where she finds her artists tribe amongst underprivileged children.
Roger's website : www.rogerhousden.com. Very interesting.
