Conexiones improbables: Tarkovski y Beckett

30/07/2010 § 2 comentarios

Al ver la película Stalker (1979) de Andrei Tarkovski, tengo una impresión muy clara del parentesco con las obras de Samuel Beckett.

El espacio abstracto, desnaturalizado, enemigo, hostil, extraño, difícil. Los personajes decadentes, pesimistas, marginales, casi moribundos, reducidos al tuétano de lo vital. Los diálogos entre profundos y absurdos. Las acciones lentas, los movimientos penosos.

En los diarios de Tarkovski encuentro dos referencias a Beckett. La primera (4-2-1974), en el marco del teatro del absurdo, carece de interés. La segunda (25-12-1974) es exactamente lo que buscaba: una anotación sobre Molloy. En este relato ve Tarkovski el diagrama de la vida de alguien que trata (activamente) de entender el sentido de la vida. Y, más adelante: Llevar Molloy a los Strugatski.

Los hermanos Strugatski son dos escritores soviéticos de ciencia-ficción, autores del guión de Stalker y de la novela Picnic Extraterrestre, en la que está basada la película.

    “Warm ” system is widely working at many countries of the world.
    By the end of 1970 electrical radiant becomes very widespread,
    particularly in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and the Scandinavian countries.
    heating could be used practically in all types of premises both as the sole method of heating and along with other
    forms of heating. Warm s are well protected against moisture and humidity.
    That’s the reason Electric Heating is recommended to be installed in bathrooms, swimming pools and showers.

    Thermal Energy Storage (TES) may be considered as a useful
    tool to reduce the cooling load requirement by means
    of spreading day time loads over 24 hour period utilising the naturally occurring ambient temperature difference.

    ‘Utilize electronics with the ENERGY STAR logo – Many commercial buildings use thousands
    of electronic devices, from computers to microwaves.
    According to its government sponsored website, ENERGRY STAR is
    “a government-backed program helping businesses and people protect the environment through superior energy efficiency.” Making use
    of one’s energy STAR sponsored products can reduce energy use by up to 50%.

    Your initial cost of installing a solar water heater may be daunting, but when you compare it to replacing
    a broken geyser and leaking pipes, you’ll discover that the
    difference isn’t so great after all. And however consider that you’ll be slicing 85%
    off your electricity bill every month, solar power becomes even more attractive.
    In times when every cent counts and a penny saved is literally a penny earned, solar water heaters are worth how much in gold.

    An outstanding solar water heater should provide over 20 years of uninterrupted service, although as with conventional, electric heaters, they do require some maintenance.
    The insulation on the pipes needs to become checked regularly to ensure that energy
    isn’t unnecessarily lost to the environment and the tank might
    have to have periodic flushing. The pump may need to be serviced and will probably need to be
    replaced after about 10 years, as will the tank, but this is no more than electric water heaters demand to stay in good
    working order.

    In floor heating systems require reduction for warm floor devices.

    Underfloor heating system has some advantages which can become the decisive factor while making selection to choose electric radiant floor heating (flooring heat).

    Jot vary from the cheap radiant fires, or the more
    recent halogen heaters, to expensive coal, log or flame effect fires, often
    used as a focal point for a room. Disorderly commonly combine radiant and convection heating.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Outstanding work! egkdgkaaefae
