Poem (I lived in the first century of world wars) Video Release

Join us for the premiere of Manual Cinema’s new video adaptation of Muriel Rukeyser’s Poem (I lived in the first century of world wars). Poem employs shadow puppetry, live actors in silhouette, digital animation, and original music and sound design to illustrate two lives as they unfold in split screen, one during the tumultuous world events of 1968, the other 50 years later against a new landscape of uncertainty and ever-present digital technology. The screening will take place at 7:30pm sharp.

Created by Manual Cinema. Produced by Poetry Foundation & Poetry Magazine
