VideoBardo at Liberated Words II festival, 3 October, 2013



After being invited  to present a paper and screening at VideoBardo ‘For the Earth’ festival in 2012, Sarah Tremlett wanted to create an opening for Argentinian and Latin American video poetry in the UK. She invited Javier Robledo to contribute a curation for Liberated Words II festival at the Arnolfini, Bristol on October 3rd, National Poetry Day. This was a one-day festival and attached are both the programme for the entire festival as well as the VideoBardo section with Javier’s introduction to video poetry and notes on the artists and their works – Javier presentation about VideoBardo and 2013 screening at Liberated Words. The films mainly in Spanish were very revealing, and we were honoured to screen them as a wonderful contribution to the whole event.
