Liberated Words, VideoBardo & the Poetics of Poetry Film. Documentaries featuring Spanish, Portuguese and Argentinian Videopoets
Brave New Literatures festival
We dedicate today's presentation to the Aragonese poet Ángel Guinda (Zaragoza 1948 – Madrid 29 January 2022). Charles Olsen @colsenart, who presents the documentary 'Videopoetry in Portugal and Spain' says Ángel was a poet, friend, and an inspiration, both in his poetry and his way of being. The photo of Ángel Guinda is from the poetry film Olsen made with him: 'The Book of Traces', and the documentary also includes a fragment of 'On the Eve of Death' which filmmaker Sándor M. Salas made with Guinda in 2014. Sándor commented in his interview for The Poetics of Poetry Film: '[Ángel] is someone who understands other artists and therefore gives them the freedom and respect to create'.
Two documentaries made to celebrate The Poetics of Poetry Film (Intellect Books, 2021) and the 25th videopoetry festival VideoBardo, Argentina:
Co-director of Liberated Words and editor of The Poetics of Poetry Film, Sarah Tremlett is interviewed by Javier Robledo about the book and her connection with the festival.
Madrid-based poet and artist Charles Olsen presents Videopoetry in Portugal and Spain based on his essays for the book, featuring interviews with filmmakers from both countries.
