Poetry + Video in Murwillumbah
The world premiere screening of Poetry + Video, a touring program of video poetry from Australia and beyond, will take place at The Garden Gallery, Murwillumbah, on Saturday 4 May 2019, at 7.30pm.
This is a rare opportunity to see a kind of poetic film-making rarely exhibited in Australia, from some of the most highly regarded practitioners world-wide. This is an unmissable event for those interested in poetry, short film-making, or just curious about unique ways of fusing word, image and sound.
The program’s curator is southern Gold Coast film-maker, Marie Craven, internationally recognised for over 20 years as a director of film shorts and video poems. Poets Matt Hetherington (Murwillumbah) and Bronwen Manger (Brisbane) will perform live, with a Q & A session at the end of the evening.
After its Murwillumbah premiere, the video program will be going on to screen in Kathmandu and the USA, among other international venues into 2020.
$10 cash entry at the door. Reservations advised as seating is limited, by phoning Karen on 0449 719 617 or Marie by email.
