Keith Haring photographed by
Tseng Kwong Chi painting the mural at Necker Children’s Hospital in Paris, 1987.
The mural was done with hopes to brighten the days of the sick children. Necker Hospital is known for specializing in rare genetic diseases. The hospital has been under renovation for a couple of years but Haring’s work got saved.

Laënnec invented the stethoscope while working at the hospital in 1816.
Hi! I was wondering if you could recommend some short stories that would make an interesting short film..I prefer surrealism and magical realism but anything would be helpful! Thank you!
Hey! First of all, you can find a short list of short stories collections here.
For a short film, I’d recommend a few favourites of mine, highly disorienting and atmospheric:
The Horla, Maupassant The Coffee Pot, Theophile Gauthier King Copethua, Julien Gracq The Diamond Necklace, Maupassant A Tress of Hair, Maupassant A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings, Gabriel Garcia Marquez The Tell-Tale Heart, Edgar Allan Poe The Dead, James Joyce Stone Mattress, Margaret Atwood The Erl-King, Angela Carter The Lady of the House of Love, Angela Carter Parable of the Palace, J. L. Borges
I don’t know if they would make good short films, but I hope they’ll inspire you, at least!
