i carry your heart with me(i carry it in… by e.e. cummings

Poet: | Nationality: | Filmmaker:

Director/producer and editor Jacqueline Donahue was assisted by director of photography Nathan Ng and actors Naomi Khanukayev and Sami Lodi. I like the fact that the father in the poem, from whose perspective the film was shot, is never shown, and the relationship between the daughter and a boyfriend adds an interesting dimension to the text (which may be read at the Poetry Foundation website).

For a very different videopoetic interpretation, see Experimental Film: Heart by Coenraad Viviers.
