Cinepoem - where poetry and film meet!
A ground breaking collaborative exchange between three Israeli film-makers / video artists and three British poets, translating the medium of poetry into the practise of film to produce three original, poetic films, or cinepoems.
Tom Raworth & Avi Dabach
Emanuella Amichai & SJ Fowler
Ran Slavin & Tim Atkins
The aim of the project is to transform the auspices of a selected, single poem into short, conceptual films, that will be screened at Rich Mix.
The event will also feature poetry readings from Tom Raworth, Tim Atkins and SJ Fowler, and a panel discussion exploring the unique nature of poetic / filmic collaboration and the potentiality of poetry as a medium adaptable to film.
