Description

Director in person

Leslie Scalapino was an Oakland-based poet and experimental prose writer, often associated with the Language poets whose passing left a huge imprint on the international poetry scene. Konrad Steinerís film is a visual response to Scalapinoís reading of her epic poem, way. The intention of the project is to create a musical space in cinema for the interplay of language and image. Through counterpoint, phrasing, tempo, and rhythm, the visual and the verbal are joined in time to form a duet, or a conversation. Presented in collaboration with The Poetry Center at SFSU. (2012, 68 min, 35mm)

This is presented as part of our Local Boy Makes Good film series, which focuses on local Bay Area filmmakers.
