I wanted to have the tone of this lyrical journal “Simple and Imperial.”
I am a young actress, screenwriter, director, and filmmaker from Germany, sometimes innocent, sometimes rebellious, but always creative.
This book came into my mind spontaneously, during the moment of breath between the release of my feature film “Julia 17” and my next film project. I would love it if “STAR” penetrates your souls and awakens the creative beings in each one of you.
“Einfach und Imperial”, so wollte ich den Ton dieses lyrischen Tagebuchs haben. Ich bin eine junge Schauspielerin, Drehbuchautorin, Regisseurin und Filmemacherin aus Deutschland, manchmal brav, manchmal rebellisch, aber immer kreativ.
Dieses Buch kam mir spontan in den Gedanken, im Augenblick des Atems zwischen der Veröffentlichung meines Spielfilms “Julia 17” und dem nächsten Filmprojekt. Ich würde es lieben, wenn “STAR” in eure Seelen eindringt und in jedem von euch das schöpferische Wesen erweckt.
You, my young soul,
with the part suffering from the burns
climbs in falls,
make the leap to knowledge!
The one who really deserves you,
will answer you.
“STAR is a soul diary, self-compensating act…
…It is the firm message of a young woman who does not endlessly accept counterfeiting…”
“STAR ist ein Seelen-Tagebuch, ein sich selbst kompensierender Akt…
…Das ist die feste Botschaft einer jungen Frau, die Fälschungen nicht endlos akzeptiert…”
– Mark L. Lester American film director, author and producer from Los Angeles.
“Love and distance. These are just two of the themes in STAR, Andreea Boyer’s haunting and provocative collection of poems…”
“Liebe und Distanz. Dies sind nur zwei der Themen in STAR, Andreea Boyer’s eindringliche und provokative Sammlung von Gedichten…”
– N. J. Burkett American journalist and TV correspondent from New York.
(STAR is available at Amazon on Kindle and paperback. Also, you can listen to Andreea reading some select poems from STAR on Youtube.)
“Humanoid or Human?” The poetry from Andreea Boyer is remarkable for its conciseness through a finely controlled emotional involvement. The authoress expresses her own fears, but also her own revelations with passion and with sense for fine analytical observations. The burning of the effects radiates and spreads like a dense flame with a bright whisper… A humanist message and a bitter compassion overcome most of the time directly and convincingly from the speech of non-disfiguration of the soul…”
This is how the literary consultant and my mother, who is a long time writer and artist herself, Joana Geier, has described my poetry book “Humanoid or Human?”
And I can totally identify myself and my own writing in her review which I have added as a longer version at the beginning as the Introduction in my book.
With this poetry book, I am imagining the future of us Humans among the Humanoids which are robots in human shape who will probably have the functions to imitate us and maybe even the rights which we Humans have.
Scientists and also our own curiosity might develop in the near future a new era of perfectly multifunctional android (robot in man-looking casing) and gynoid (robot in woman-looking casing), which correspond with our wishes and desires as those aspects of us humans always seek for perfection. A illusionary perfection which doesn’t exist, so we tend to build a soulless and heartless perfect creature that we can dominate. But what If the Humanoids will be one day so perfectly developed that we Humans will be forced to obey them? Why do we always confidently believe that we have the power? What if our weakness, the seekness for perfection for our desires and needs will give us side effects as the result for our illogical dissatisfaction?
We have the potential already here in this dimension. Many highly intellectual and talented Humans are always waiting for new opportunities. Why should we give those opportunities to Humanoids? Maybe this question will be answered by the Humanoids themselves in the near future when Humanoids will have the same rights as we do.
So my question to all of you is: “Humanoid or Human?”
Also for this poetry book, I am indeed proud and it is my great honor to have two important reviews from two famous personalities published. Mr. “N. J. Burkett” American journalist and TV correspondent from New York wrote following review:
“Can we know what it means to be human by examining what is not human?… In her latest collection of poems, Andreea Boyer uses a contrast between humans and humanoids to achieve an awareness of our own, unique characteristics…”
And Mr “Ricardo Chavez” – Mexican actor and writer wrote:
“This is not a regular work of poetry, it is a book that’s made me wonder about not only our humanity and fragility but also about the blessing that it is to be human in this evolutionary stage.”
