Film Poems represent a meeting point between visual arts, spoken word and music. We are delighted to present Refurbishment by Luke Morgan from our collection of film poems. In Refurbishment, as in all his work, Luke Morgan connects us to the moment, maps it, brings us beyond it and changes the way we might look at the world.
Our collection also includes Connemara Illuminated by Christine Valters Paintner and Charcoal Iron by Nithy Kasa. Selfie by Victoria Kennefick is receiving its premiere screening at Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival 2021 and Wandersong by Nidhi Zak/Aria Eipe is a newly commissioned work, made especially for our very first online festival. Each one is just a few minutes long. Take a quiet moment to yourself and have a look.
