  5. This a film of a poem, Occasional China first published in 'Lifting the piano with one hand' by Gaia Holmes (Comma Press, 2013)

    I am a member of Bokeh Yeah, a filmmakers club in Manchester. We got together with Comma Press, publishers of poetry, and chose Gaia's poem about a recent bereavement.

    One autumn day we gathered in a local cemetery to film Pete Ramsay walking among the graves trying to come to terms with the death of his mother. It is a poignant poem which reminds us of the fragility of life, as well as the fear of the loss that death brings.
