This beautiful film was made by my husband, Greg Halvorsen Schreck.
Here are some notes that he’s made on the film. I’d be so happy if you’d read and view, or view and read, as you like.
“Below is a link to the film I finished in June, The Swimming Pool in Paris. I first screened it June 15 at the 2013 CIVA Conference, JustArt; on Justice and Art. The film is based on a story by John Berger. I invited John to speak at the conference; his age made that impossible. As an alternative, he suggested reading one of his stories, on video. I tried to go to France to film his reading. It didn’t work out, so I made this film in response to the story John wanted to read.
You can find it here:
Please watch the film in HD, if you have the connection for it. The picture is much better. You can set HD 720p with one of the buttons on the bottom right of the viewer. If you need to watch it at a lower resolution, it will look better if you watch it on a smaller viewer, not full screen. The HD 720p version looks great on full screen.

Anyway, thanks for watching.”
