Haven't done one of these visual poems for a while. The poem was written by my good friend Sylvia Hiven (aka Brynn). Photos and footage were shot on my Ricoh R7 camera, editing was done using Sony Vegas, and music was done using Sony Acid. Enjoy!
Late fall of '08 a group of contemporary poets from Europe and the US toured three Scandinavian Cities, Oslo, Stockholm and Gothenburg, giving three sets of readings in 72 hours. This is a rough cut preview from the documentary premiering during Audiatur '09 - festival for contemporary poetry, in Bergen November 5th-8th. The final version fatures readings by Robert Fitterman, Kim Rosenfield, Gwenäelle Stubbe, Giles Goodland, Caroline Bergvall, Ellen Grimsmo Foros, Ulf Karl Olov Nilsson, Beata Berggren and Peder Alexis Olsson.
