Poem video still


For the first time a teenage girl is encountering a poem written by her high school colleagues – members of a school debate club wrote this particular poem. In the video we see how she reacts upon the written words by translating them in semi-abstract sounds. Or she pics upon parts of the poem and tries to transform them into a new form, reading the words backward or inventing them a new. She confronts herself with an unknown material, there is no reference on which she could depend on. Therefore she finds herself in a space of learning and doing, her own creative response is being celebrated.
