Reblogged from annelyseg

annelyseg:

The statute of e-limitations has at last expired, and I’m very excited to finally publicly release the short film Auden Lincoln-Vogel and I made in New York for Astrid Haerens’ poem Trein!

The poem, read here in its original Dutch, considers the social/emotional dynamic among a group of travelers in a train compartment, the woman’s glasses the mask behind which “her sadness is settled in soft bags” - at least, that’s what the translator told us….

Thanks to photographer/filmmaker Judith Dekker (msjudee) for curating this series, and to Deus Ex Machina for commissioning us to create this work for the Felix Poetry Festival’s Filmpoem Festival 2014.

My friends and collaborators strike out with their second poem animation. I love that soft letter hitting newspaper sound.
