RECONNECTIONS at LYRA Poetry Festival, Bristol, 17 April 2021

Lucy English and I curated poetry films for LYRA under the theme of Reconnections, in relation to how we had been affected by Lockdown and the themes that had arisen. Lucy’s themes were related to Bristol and South West poets and filmmakers concerning loss, anxiety, belonging, and how we have survived through these times. I chose the theme of family history poetry film, as I had seen a couple that had arisen at festivals during the year, but also as I have been working on a family history project TREE (which includes prose, poetry and poetry film) for the last 25 years.
