POETRY as/ in/ of FILM

Poetry and film, two hands in one. Even in the earliest years of film, when the format had actually yet to be invented, we see films with poetry as a guiding or coloring element. Sometimes even literally, simply as poetic text in pictures, as in Manhatta (1920) by Charles Sheeler and Paul Strand, based on a poem by Walt Whitman. But we also see it as an aesthetic principle, especially in films that were associative in order to escape the reality of the everyday, such as Un Chien Andalou (1928) by Louis Buñuel and Salvador Dali. This poetic attitude is still present in films today. 

During the 52nd Poetry International Festival, Poetry International and LantarenVenster bring a film program with both short and feature films that relate to poetry in different ways, such as feel-good movie Paterson by Jim Jarmusch (Friday, June 10), Paradzhanov's classic The Color of Pomegranates, and Jodorowsky's autobiographical Poesía sin fin (both Sunday, June 12).

In the program Moving Poetry (Saturday, June 11) you will see four short films in which poetry (in language or subject) but also the body (as subject or dramatic element) is decisive. This is in line with the overall theme of this festival edition: The BODY as/ in/ of POETRY. From this theme we bring a variety of programs in which the relationship between poetry and the body is explored, shown and discussed. This focus is also reflected in the film programming, with David Cronenberg's classic Videodrome and Gaspar Noé's fierce Climax on Saturday, June 11, alongside short films such as Peter Tscherkassky's The Exquisite Corpus and Amanda Kramer's Sin Ultra.

As a visitor to the festival, you have free admission to the films on presentation of your festival ticket. You can also book a separate ticket for a film via the film agenda of LantarenVenster.
