~ Poet: Andy Bonjour ~

Embroidered by Andy Bonjour

Andy Bonjour‘s brief, deceptively simple videopoem about his wife’s embroidery was selected for Visible Verse 2014 and the “Parallel Worlds” programme at ZEBRA. Videopoetry critic Erica Goss included it in a list of ten stand-out films from the 7th ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival. It’s a gem of a video, and demonstrates that sometimes closely aligned footage and text can really work together, producing not a feeling of redundancy but something more like gestalt.

Rain Moments of Today by Andy Bonjour

Andy Bonjour is a professional filmmaker, but this has the feel of something utterly off-the-cuff, film and poem coming into existence at the same time.
