Southsea Cinema News

ExplorE poetry-film

A screening event exploring the intersection of poetry and film. Tongues & Grooves, in partnership with Lewes Live Literature, presents an intimate, conversational event, focused on three unique collaborations between poets and filmmakers.

Maggie Sawkins’ award-winning ‘Zones of Avoidance’ videos, shot at locations in Portsmouth with artist / filmmaker Abigail Norris; three film poems by Caribbean poet John Agard, made in collaboration with young documentary filmmaker Millie Dobres; and playwright Mark C. Hewitt’s enigmatic collection of noirish black & white micro-videos, each less than 90 seconds duration and each voiced by a different actor, made in collaboration with Southsea artist/musician Matt Parsons, which have variously been screened at over 40 short films festivals in 19 countries, earning 4 winner laurels as well as being a Finalist at the Arte Laguna Prize exhibition in Venice.
