Poetry / Spoken Word

Over the course of a summer day in 2012, two Trinidadian artists, poet Vahni Capildeo and filmmaker Karen Martinez, set out to make a film featuring three of Vahni's poems. They wandered through the environs of northwest London (assisted by Ava Martinez Lambert) and this four-minute film is the result.

'The Pale Beast' is taken from Dark & Unaccustomed Words (Egg Box, 2012). The 'Person Animal Figure' dramatic monologue series is included in Undraining Sea (Egg Box, 2009). 'Calling Time' will appear in Utter (Peepal Tree, 2013).
