11:32 am
a psi or tragic comedy giant movie posters can be seen all over berlin and not just during its international film festival goods valley and helps films make a big splash. the movie poster painter is one of the last of his kind. he refer, i love film and it's one of the most important things colon it's art, really someone push it. i don't differentiate between art and film, ionic or me. it's a great art form. you could call it pop art or popular culture, which would be lost without movies. some of involve mis at his berlin studio. he's making a poster for the cities, film festival, the bad. another. first, he sketches the outline or the of, of his are. i don't use projections much. yeah. just enough to give me some orientation on this huge canvas afterward line one because up close things look different than they do from far away. those refund me. ready the hardest part is
11:33 am
getting the proportions right, because the canvas is 5 meters high and 9 meters wide. that's $45.00 times the size of a standard movie. poster. goods value uses a spray gun for the larger surfaces. he goes through 20 leaders of paint per poster . 5 i leg, you're out how to do it. while i work, there is no plan. everything is improvised. every picture is different and poses different challenges for in terms of color on structure. ok, so i just try to get it right as quickly as possible. normally, it takes good value in 2 days to complete a commission. his hand painted film posters, costs 800 euros apiece. he said, great story in his precise technique using a paint brush to bring out the details as if the machine was i'm, it's a mixture of everything it's on. you must be extremely bit well and flexible, like a ballet dancer able to jump around. i think everybody you have to be able to do
11:34 am
with all at the same time one and also know how to paint that was banned on. even if it sounds like i'm exaggerating that you need courier read because when you stand there in the morning facing a 9 meter long white campus that needs to be finished by the evening, you have to be able to just office. we'll jump right in. and we'll start, i'm spring uncommon goods, valley and study painting in vienna before moving to berlin. he made his 1st movie poster in 1992 and has painted over 2000 more since then. his artworks are almost hyper realistic. that one 3rd freshman book and other good mod have letter 30 years of experience i figure i can say the difference between a print and a painted poster. what is that you abstract? alice off of auto captures? absolutely. everything. every little structure to whether you wanted to or not reminded us. whereas i accentuate the things i feel need to be stressed is it's
11:35 am
a form of reducing things to their essence of surveys, english other all that's missing now is the writing. then the giant bell, and now the poster will be done. val lean is assisted by rosita cutter that they've worked together for 30 years and only parted company when a film proved too successful. prevent benefit that i am runs for 3 or 4 months in all the cinema i field and we simply have nothing to do for that long while i tannis was the worst of all. no one saw it coming. the film came out of nowhere. suddenly we were unemployed, were 3 month on its loss. but it's not just block clusters that make life difficult. if you are movie theaters can afford to commission hand painted movie posters. so valiant craft is threatened with extinction. but that just makes him even more determined to carry on that. so to get as much rangers have been under
11:36 am
stress i ever since prince started being made by non force, but my aim is to be better than a print gun. that might sound arrogant. that's what it's really true is up to, that's what i learned is i'm generally better than a poster because i'm better at getting the point across colma it's more personal hazardous yet i'm just as quick and those are that i can make them just as big cause can also calls the goods bellini isn't sentimental about his past movie posters. once the film they promote has left the cinemas. he simply paints over them. one of the best ways to see europe is by train. and if you want a really memorable ride than a trip to the swiss alps on the glacier express should be on your bucket list. well, the trains cars have glass tops giving travelers incredible views of the mount landscapes, while the journey from saint morris to sir mot in switzerland takes about 8 hours, which makes it the slowest express train in the world. duramax report or hon. a
11:37 am
hole hopped on board for the latest installment of europe by train. ah no dusted mountains and glistening glaciers. rocky gorges and stunning ski slopes. this is train travel at its peak. hi there, i am hannah, whom o and today i am traveling on the glacier express. the twisting track travels through some of switzerland's most scenic landscape, which is why it's often described as one of the most breathtaking journeys in the world. i'm starting my journey in st. morris, a winter sports resort. beloved by the jet set. it's airily, the sun is just rising and it's minus 10 degrees celsius. but hopefully it'll be worth it for the gorgeous winter views i've been promised. our 8 hour long trip through the swiss alps begins and sent more. it's continues through core and
11:38 am
matt and break and ends and sir matt. the route connects to ski resort towns often viewed as the winter playgrounds of the rich and famous big glacier express calls itself the world's slowest, fast re averaging just 38 kilometers an hour. it passes through $91.00 tunnels and crosses at $291.00 bridges, including the land, faster viaduct, a unesco world heritage site. the train is making a somewhat longer stop to switch engine. so i'm going to see if i can have a quick chat with the train driver palo when that hello. can you tell me right about what it's like to actually drive a train like this on a snow?
11:39 am
it's quite challenging. you need to have a good concentration and an overview of the root all as well as know the mountains and where the dangerous parts are alive. i hurry back onto the train just in time for lunch. the glacier express prepares all of its food on board in this tiny kitchen. it offers a 3 course meal of traditional swift cuisine that goes perfectly with the surrounding scenery. a verena mikaela has worked on board since 2018 yesterday. that's our international comment. there are new gums every day, which makes the job interesting. if we get to exchange stories, which makes the day so enriching the muffin top for one, then she serves me a traditional schnapps, the shoot tomorrow, just for digestion. of course,
11:40 am
a good to go in the glacier express wasn't always a luxury tourist attraction. it started running in 1930 as a way for locals to get around. but only in the summer months. the vast amount of snow and ice made it too difficult to operate in the winter time. in the early 19 eighties, miss west began to recognize the trains tourism potential. the railway line was overhauled, so it could run it year round, the glacier express became one of the world's most successful and well known tourists trade. several hours into the journey. we reached the highest point on the line that over out pass at an elevation of 2033 meters. no wonder this is also a popular ski area. this is definitely the most amazing view
11:41 am
so far. like being if i had a snow globe. so if so got a few more hours to go think i'm going to try and explore the train and see if there's anything else to see. so i'm sitting in 1st class, but there's even an extra class. excellent class. let's go take a look, arrive tickets for these seats constant. i watering 650 euros. so unsurprisingly, there are only a few people in this carriage. i order and a crony at the bar, made with regional, swiss to, ah, 300 kilometers later. the train reaches its destination. after 8 hours, we finally arrived in 7 months. it was like a winter wonderland. gorgeous scenery, but now it's really time to stretch my legs. i even catch
11:42 am
a glimpse of the famous matter horn. just as the sunsets over this plan, you know, village breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day and it's also served as inspiration to one artist in the u. k. you mang lew liked to crochet and embroider, but she took it to another level by turning her english breakfast into 3 d. art. embroidered edibles is her latest project and we met up with her in london to hear more about it. o anguish breakfast with bacon eggs and beans. for how about some popcorn or broccoli, tasty. they'll be. look, these foodstuffs are best not eaten. british artist you mang, lou created them with a needle and thread. think of
11:43 am
a food has their own character. for example, like him, my baby brocly i made, i want to let people feel relaxing and they felt really peaceful. and for example, like my fide ag, it's really energetic and worn. so i wanna transfer all of the feelings to my audiences. so the idea of food inspired embroidery came to her over breakfast in 2020. and the series embroidered edibles was born. she posts the finished works on instagram. her goal is to create $301.00 pieces in total. it's actually really good . cuba, a 30 one a is a computer language is a, it's like something like me direction. so at that time as a new direction. you mang lou, who's originally from the chinese region, you know, studied at the london school of bashing to day. she lives in bristol, england. she takes her inspiration from the culture and landscapes of both
11:44 am
countries. i went to a daily, it's a by minority re jane china, so i went to a pod. can i met the locos, who was doing the amazing punch nato embroidery by just straight away, i being attracted by their work enthralled by this handiwork. you mang lube began to teach herself the punch needle technique. unlike normal embroidery, it involves working with loops. ideas developed a night, vents it into my own like techniques basically push them through us into the base fabric. and now i will get a lot of loose in the flood, and then i just a tray man as copa to the of fi. no. look that what at what the artist is fascinated by diverse textures and by the unique nature of a variety of fruit and vegetables in particular. they have, oh,
11:45 am
different like touch you texture. so someone really smooth osama has this kind of really thumb discipline like it. so face, i feel like they, they want me to use my knee dose to tow that do to tell that different stories about them depending on the size and the effort required. the artist can work up to several months on an object. she uses silk or cotton thread for all her projects. smaller works have about 10000 loops, while larger ones have more than 100000. i designed it, my own best po, punch, nieto goes to the, the mog here was really big and, and, and like this wise, really danica. so you can quit and more in details. occasionally you mang lou also accepts commissions and she can imagine working with fashion houses and other companies in the future. but her heart belongs to this main project.
11:46 am
now i'm thinking that these projects more like a lifetime project, so i will keep making more odds would no, i keep all of them because i, i really hope that one day i can exhibit them all of them into in the gallery optical illusions which wet the appetite for more, in this context, playing with your food is quite all right. when something so easy to do, how often have you said? i can do that with my eyes closed or i've cooked that there's so many times i can do it blindfolded. well, for one chef in italy doing things without sight is his reality because he is in fact blind. instead, antonio chuck to law employes, all of his other senses to rain over his kitchen. and the results are not only
11:47 am
tasty, but they're very inspiring. ah, antonio chalk, the law can smell every single ingredient, although he cannot see, he can create the most demanding dishes. for me, it's not a problem that i can't see because you can also see with their hands all the money . every morning the italian chef bakes his sour dough bread with sausage or cheese filling on board dominga shoe line. never actually think about the fact that i can't see that i completely blind rather good on benzo my. i feel like a normal person a from be said to have a shorter. maybe it's because i so much enjoy preparing these great dishes. higher were suspended it by the it he's cuisine traditional italian with a dash of fantasy in the village of bel videos that and say near the adrian
11:48 am
coast, you will find his restaurant. lots have edna dahlia to keep on the menu such dishes as milk for yet. with pecorino. milky with truffles or asparagus quiche with bacon. he hears if the onions for the spaghetti carbon ata get too hot and smells when the pasta water boils. you go. i feel with the bork that the bacon is getting harder now. sticking a bit to the pan and slowly getting crispin, what i can smell and here it will water. it. when it doesn't mean i'm better than other cooks. again, that is just more concentrated. ok, because i'm not distracted, i thought and rely completely on smell touches and hearing the thought a as a young man, antonio chuck the law was already working as a cook in his birthplace, near naples, along with his wife. he opened his own restaurant in bed. etta austin se in 2001 on new year's eve, 2005, he was hit by
11:49 am
a firework in front of his restaurant. lost his eye sight. ah, he refused to retrain. returning to his kitchen to test out if he could still manage there as a blind man. she'll be told the story if i noticed immediately that i could still handle the night and me a night. as my frantic will rejoice in the beginning, i often cut myself a violet not any more gay and realizing that my hands could still handle the knife pretty well. gave me courage of a broken away. i learned quickly to belay and chop again. your main doorknob, and that's when i said to myself, if i can cut blind, then i can do other things to the doors. and he wrote a book about his story. it boiled in by the law, which means the darkness in the pan. when shopping, his keen sense of smell and touch helps him to assess the quality and freshness of the ingredients and make the best choices with rich in the kitchen. almost
11:50 am
everything remains as he last saw it before the accident. in the beginning, a cook would assist him, but in the meantime, antonio chocula does almost everything on his own. again, his wife manolo mariani helps with some tasks. her husband, sudden blindness, was a great shock to her. in wonder for a world class today, i didn't know where to start again, how to go on. everything had changed drastically. all just thought was among the mean though, when with time you find a way you have to keep going got the, the me that apples with their children were born after the accident. antonio has never seen his sons. he doesn't only run a restaurant, he enters competitions, does cooking shows on tv and teaches budding chefs. ah,
11:51 am
the 60 seats in his restaurant are almost always book down. ah, a restaurant whose reputation reaches far beyond the small italian town. got sort of the buddhist very good and none of us would have guessed that the ship was blinding, gleaming compliments, it tasted great ring. the specialties here always surprise me. there is always something new on the menu with occasionally antonio chopped. the law greets his guests personally, but mostly he doesn't have time to spare from the cooking. before his accident, his ambition was to earn a michelin star, and despite his blindness, he still hopes to achieve this one day. and finally, we turn our attention to a polish artist who likes to play with dolls, but not in a pretty. in pink world. monica must tova cat shoots,
11:52 am
morbid ghost like portraits of her subjects to revoke evoke a range of emotions while her photos have an eerie and sound quality about them. but they also fascinate. as we found out when we visited her in krakow lou these dolls are not toys. they're so realistic. it's almost creepy. especially when polish artists, monica must novick, sets them up for a photo shoot. they capture something ethereal. you could almost expect them to come alive. i may be j, d doors collector and photographer those photographer. so b, j. d, those are my passion. actually, i spend the like already like more than 10 years of my life. where photographing b,
11:53 am
j. d, or ball jointed dolls, come from asia. they can be arranged and all kinds of poses thanks to their ball and socket joints. monica owns over 25 of them. she gets a russian artist to paint their faces and body parts, according to her exact requests. a new character is created for each photo. mm. so you can exchange to eyes sas so i, she can look, you know, aside oh, in front. so you can change the color of voice size of ours and so on. so again, it would be like a different face and then different than different character. the dolls are often dressed in taylor made clothes. this dress, for example, was sewn by an artist brand. there are different sizes of those. so sometimes you'd say, you know, hard to find a right dress because sometimes the dress is to be go too small. the leather
11:54 am
boots are color coordinated with the dress. monica wears gloves, so as not to smudge the doll's delicate makeup. she wants her photographs of the dolls to stimulate viewer's fantasy. ah, his daughter, you know, are so inspiring for me because they are not smiling at city. they are pretty serious or even said old crying. yes. so it is some possible to canada, a more serious stories, not about toys, but actually about the people. yeah. about a few months emotion. she showcases her artworks on instagram and at exhibitions. like here in her hometown of krakow, monica often stages her photo shoots in derelict buildings or abandon sites
11:55 am
that i should have. she came and lot, she has the dolls evoke an uneasy feeling in me nipple, but i wouldn't call it fear. exactly. otherwise, i wouldn't be here from today, mostly because of those of budget many of the photographs feature groups of dolls resembling families or siblings monica, my stove expos combine, a fairy tale look with a morbid atmosphere. there hauntingly airy and they certainly fascinate and way that we come to the end of another shall be sure to check out our website for a chance at receiving this, the handy dandy dw backpack, and also follow up on social media. as always, thanks for tuning in with the against him with
