Film Poems represent a meeting point between visual arts, spoken word and music. We are delighted to present this premiere screening of Selfie by Victoria Kennefick at Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival 2021. In Selfie, Victoria Kennefick explores the sense of powerlessness a young woman feels growing from childhood to adulthood, she deems herself simultaneously too small and too big, an Alice in Wonderland.
Our collection also includes Connemara Illuminated by Christine Valters Paintner, Charcoal Iron by Nithy Kasa and Refurbishment by Luke Morgan. Wandersong by Nidhi Zak/Aria Eipe is a newly commissioned work 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.
