Wim Wenders - Written In The West
In preparation for shooting the film PARIS, TEXAS in late 1983, Wim Wenders traveled the West equipped with a 6 x 7 medium format camera searching out subjects and location that would bring that desolate landscape to life.

Amanda Lewis reflects on Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami’s individualistic, modernized take on Japan and its people in her essay, “The Essence of the Japanese Mind: Haruki Murakami and the Nobel Prize”:
Unlike the feelings of dislocation and disbelief experienced by Murakami’s characters during actual traumatic moments, many characters feel the fictional stories they’ve read or been told seem more real than reality. Human beings are constantly searching for meaning, for a coherent narrative to bind together the information they are given.
History and news can provide this narrative, but fiction, according to Murakami, does it better. Why? Because fiction honors the dignity of an individual consciousness, while history and news group people together, creating the illusion that a hundred, a thousand or a million lives can be analyzed as one.
