Talk to poets and artists behind the Polyphonic filmpoems

The Polyphonic filmpoems highlight the vivid interplay which can occur between art forms in a coming together of written word with still and moving image. The filmpoems bring Romania’s best contemporary poetry to life with twenty animations created by visual artist Raluca Popa. The artist illustrated works by nine young Romanian poets of various ethnic backgrounds, who themselves use polyphony in their poetry by writing both in Romanian and their first language. Come along today to talk to artist Raluca Popa and poets Claudiu Komartin and Simona Nastac about the filmpoems.

Supported by the Romanian Cultural Institute
