Poet: Annie Finch

Landing Under Water, I See Roots by Annie Finch

Poet: | Nationality: | Filmmaker:

A beautiful and, to my mind, highly effective book trailer for Spells: New and Selected Poems by Annie Finch, due out this month from Wesleyan University Press. U.K. animator Suzie Hanna describes their creative process in a note at Vimeo:

The film was made through a Transatlantic collaborative shared process. Annie sent her voice recording to me and I responded with clips of tests and animatics which I adjusted, extended or dumped in response to her reactions.

For the text of the poem (and audio of Finch’s reading), see poets.org.
