Join us for a curated poetry film screening and Q&A hosted by Professor Lucy English of Bath Spa University with Adrian B. Earle (Think/Write/Fly)and Sarah Tremlett (Liberated Words).
About this event
Poetry films are short films which blend word, spoken or as text, sound and moving image. In this curation, Adrian B. Earle (Think/Write/Fly) and Sarah Tremlett (Liberated Words) have chosen a selection of films which showcase unusual or different approaches to creation and/or less represented voices. This will be followed by a Q&A.
Place and Time – Adrian B. Earle
Poetry film can explore voices made distant by place and time. How can translations of ancient poetry be relevant to contemporary audiences? How does our perception of time change in different situations such as waiting for a pregnancy test? How can we reclaim marginal language through poetry film and how can poetry film represent new visions of masculinity?

Voicing the More-Than-Human – Sarah Tremlett
Sarah Tremlett looks at how poetry film-makers express, in different ways, the politically and economically disregarded voices of the more-than-human in our fast disappearing fragile world ecosystems. How can the aesthetics of the ecopoetry film transcend or disrupt the androcentric viewpoint, and raise awareness of such major issues for the planet?
