Nirvana

Hooked on Sam Smith “Nirvana,” the Merriam-Webster online dictionary describes nirvana as the state of perfect happiness and peace in Buddhism where there is release from all forms of suffering.

The short movie “Trading Nirvana” is filmed in Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam & China. Director Ryan Emond focused on allowing each scene telling its own story. Traveling to Nirvana is of course impossible, but perhaps through music and pictures it´s possible. Perfect happiness could be individually formed or attached to others. In reality, a question leaving a puzzle of thoughts. What do you think of the “Trading Nirvana”?

I’ve been looking for you, lone star.

Says the character Rayon (Jared Leto) in the movie “Dallas Buyers Club,” Set in Dallas during the 1980s, telling the story of electrician and hustler Ron Woodroof´s (Matthew McConaughey) HIV and AIDS battle. The real Ron Woodroof received an AIDS diagnosis in 1986, AZT was the sole drug on the market to treat the disease. Upon the diagnosis, Ron was given just six months to live and he promptly began a regimen of AZT. Which nearly killed him. At the time the U.S government knew very little, how to combat, Woodroof took proactive measures studying the disease and how it affected the body. Searching worldwide for drugs to counteract and experimenting with non-FDA-approved medication and other drugs.

Woodroof founded the Dallas Buyers Club in March 1988,  he received help from his doctor and a fellow patient. Out of his Oak Lawn, Texas apartment Ron operated a large distribution center for experimental AIDS treatments. Resulting in a huge network of buyers and sellers, aiming to fly under the FDA radar. FDA turned the other cheek a while, it was only after network growth federal officials looked into the club. Woodroof, though claimed the club was not run for profit. Ron battled for six years with his own treatments before dying in Texas September 12. 1992. (source: biography.com)

I saw “Dallas Buyers Club” yesterday and was really moved by the story, it raised many questions. Aimed to focus on the real Ron, to draw attention to an important issue. Included a Vimeo by Caleb Vinson called in DALLAS, a short movie just in tune with “Dallas Buyers Club.”
