In times of crisis it is very important to give comfort to others. One word or gesture can make a big difference here. Especially now language gains a deeper meaning. A song text, a film quotation or a poem moves us much more strongly now. The films in this programme are intended to give hope and comfort. It is a selection of the best poetry films that have been shown in previous editions of the ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival.
