Film Poems represent a meeting point between visual arts, spoken word and music. We are delighted to present Wandersong by Nidhi Zak/ Aria Eipe, which was commissioned as a film poem by Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival 2021. It references Yeat's The Song of Wandering Aengus, retaining the form and the last words in each line, and references the story of Caer Ibormeith, Celtic Goddess of dreams, who transformed from a swan into a human on each alternate Samhain.
Our collection also includes Connemara Illuminated by Christine Valters Paintner, Refurbishment by Luke Morgan and Charcoal Iron by Nithy Kasa. Selfie by Victoria Kennefick is receiving its premiere screening at Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival 2021. Each one is just a few minutes long. Take a quiet moment to yourself and have a look.
