It's a short film/promo of a debut collection of poems "Excavating the Sky" by Konstantin Kulakov.
In his poems, Konstantin Kulakov labors to relate the inner spirituality of his Russian background to the fragmentation of a market-driven New World. Whether it is his Muslim-Christian relationship, his dance with natural science, or his struggle to expose continued US raciality, Kulakov seeks the contradictions in everything, "mixing words to bring-out sparks." What emerges is a spiritual language that resists the exclusionary tendencies of the 21st century and offers subtle flashes of possibility. Throughout, there is breaking, but there is also unfolding.
