Movietelling: Writing at the Edge of Word + Image
Nair, Marilyn Nelson, Paolo Javier

Frank O’Hara famously said most poets were worse than the movies, but then he’d never heard of Movietelling. It’s a multimedia literary performance genre that’s as new as Youtube and video art and as old as 1920s Japan, where storytellers would “talk” over silent films in lieuof intertitles. Meera Nair (Video), Marilyn Nelson (The Homeplace and The Fields of Praise), and Queens Poet Laureate Paolo Javier (60 lv Bo(e)mbs) read pieces they’ve written in response to the moving image.
