With hearty thanks to MDK reader Magali, who took the time to send us this gem, here’s a transcendent little knitting break for you. It’s a short (20-minute) film by Benjamin Wolff, Bis Gleich (Till Then). It has the tiniest of knitting angles. Though it’s a bit sad (but not as sad as you might expect), I am placing Bis Gleich in my personal pantheon of works that make me feel the deep-down beauty of our days together in this life. (Others: Wim Wenders’s film Wings of Desire, and Thornton Wilder’s play Our Town, especially when performed by high school students.)
I say no more. Click on this link to watch it on YouTube.
P.S. I do say more. If you loved Bis Gleich, here’s a brief interview with director Benjamin Wolff about the casting and setting.
