An attempt at describing video poetry with words alone leaves out half the poetry of the genre! Come to this screening to see work that helped define the video poetry genre from its beginnings to outstanding contemporary examples.

A panel discussion on the history and definition of video poetry will follow the screening and include an opportunity for audience questions and contributions. Panelists include Tom Konyves, IAS professor Amaranth Borsuk, andNikkita "KO" Oliver!

About the Cadence Festival
Verse meets visuals in motion during a series of cinepoem screenings, ekphrastic responses, and generative workshops celebrating National Poetry Month. Cadence is programmed in collaboration with Chelsea Jean Werner-Jatzke.

Video poetry is the synthesis of two types of imagination. It is text-based video work or a video-based text piece. It is a space within which visual and text are intrinsic to each other. It is a poetry genre that some might call an experimental film. A video poem makes meaning that would not exist if the text was without image, the image without text.
