First kiss

Buenos dias Hart Beat. Have you seen this video? It cropped up on my newsfeed this morning and I knew that I had to share it with you. The short film directed by Tatia Pilieva, called First Kiss, is unbelievably breathtaking to watch. The premise of the video was to have 20 strangers kiss for the first time and the results are beautiful. The video goes along with my idea that no one in New York would be single if people talked to each other on the subway. Happy Tuesday! Now go kiss someone.

P.S. The song from the film is by SOKO and called “We Might Be Dead By Tomorrow”

The Man’s Guide To Love: We are the result of love

Happy Christmas Eve, Hart Beat! Tonight before you all go off to celebrate this beautiful night I wanted to share with you one of my favorite sites about love to browse. The series is called “The Man’s Guide to Love“and the premise is the artist travels all over the country and ask men this simple question; “If you had one piece of advice that you’d give another man about love, what would it be?” The answers are then published on the website every day. This video bellow of Alain and is one of my all time favorites of the series. Merry Christmas loves!

“Love is the beginning. 
It’s the end and it’s even the middle. 
That is to say, without love nothing exists. 
One enters the world with love. 
Because if there isn’t love between the father and mother, between a man and a woman, well, then neither you, nor me, 
we wouldn’t be here. 
So if we are here we are the result of love.”
       

“35 and Single” by Paula Schargorodsky

Now I am the only single one left. In your 20s you are free to do whatever you want; have boyfriends, lovers, one night stands, work, study, just like men. But female freedom has an expiration date. When you turn 30 a conservative curtain falls. At every social gathering you are confronted with one silent question, when will you settle down?

Hi Hart Beat. My best friend and favorite roommate shared this video with me tonight. I love it so much and I knew I had to share it with all of you lovely readers. I can’t stop watching it. Paulina Schargorodsky is an Argentine film maker that has been recording her boyfriends over the past ten years. This short piece was featured in The New York Times Op-Ed Contributors section of their website. You can watch the video here in this post just bellow. 
Even though my friends and I have not hit 30, or even 25, this video hit really close to home. I think that even though we all aren’t struggling with the social and personal implications of being a women in her 30s in modern society, Paulina Schargorodsky’s video speaks to the more universal truth of finding yourself. Negotiating your career ambitions, self discovery, and future goals is unbelievable overwhelming and I was continually struck at the way Paulina shared these personal struggles. I love her story and think this is a video to be shared and talked about.

I was looking for an intense, passionate love story and I found many. Each one of them was a love of my life.  None lasted more than two years. I never imagined they would all end up together in a box of tapes. 

What do you think, Hart Beat? Do you find parts of yourself in this Op-Ed piece? I would love to hear what you think…

A distance love story

Hey Hart Beat. How’s you’re Sunday night going? I hope you had a nice weekend out, wherever you are. Earlier today I found this amazing video and I had to share it with you. It’s a simple love story about distance and I thought it was really sweet. And, a little tidbit for ya, apparently the entire video was filmed on a Nokia cell phone. Technology man, crazy world. What do you think of the movie, Hart Beat?

I love the shots of Paris vs. New York in this video. It made me a little dizzy the first time but I think sometimes thats how it feels to live in a city. I love New York so much but I remember what it was like to be split for a while. Nice job James W. Griffiths, you win.
