Gacela of Unforeseen Love by Federico Garcia Lorca

Poet: | Nationality: | Filmmaker:

I’m rarely satisfied with my own efforts, but I do like this one. (Which is not to say it couldn’t be improved.) I blogged a bit about the poem at Via Negativa last month.

Ars Poetica? by Czeslaw Milosz

Poet: | Nationality: | Filmmaker:

A Moving Poems production (with fingers crossed that Milosz’s heirs aren’t too litigious). The audio is Milosz himself, not the same translation as the one that made it into the Collected Poems (which you can read here).

This was “found video” rather than something deliberately planned and acted to go along with the poem, though of course I edited it to make a better fit.
