Tyger

Animation

By Guilherme Marcondes (Video) inspired by William Blakes poem "The Tyger"

 

 

                                 William Blake The Tyger
 

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright

In the forests of the night,

 What immortal hand or eye

Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?

On what wings dare he aspire?

What the hand dare sieze the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears,
And water'd heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see?

Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye,

Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

# SUSANNE WIEGER / ROBERT LAX - THE LIGHT THE SHADE


  Poetry Film International

Animation

 The light the shade by Susanne Wiegner (animation) Robert Lax (text, voice)

 

 

"the light - the shade" is a poem by Robert Lax that plays with the contrasts and opposites light and shade, with bright and dark, black and white, red and blue. The film begins with a nighttime scenery in a city, moves into a room and starts watching the movement of the shadows on the wall. Finally the camera enters the screen of a laptop and goes deeper and deeper into the poem. The film becomes a journey through the realm of imagination, through spaces and pictures, through letters and words. In that way the minimal language of the poem is unfolded into unexpected pictures.

JOCHEN KUHN - NEULICH 2


  Poetry Film International
Animation

Neulich 2 by Jochen Kuhn (Germany)

 

 

 

 

Jochen Kuhn is known as one of the  leading artists in painted animation. His films won prices all over the world and his paintings and films are also part of the private "collection Goetz" and in MOMA NY.
A Kuhn film is very literary - you could describe it as a painted literary short story brought into film. In these short films a self reflecting narrator tells a story about his every day life, which mostly leads up in a humerous and human philosophy of resignation.

"Neulich 2" is part of the serie Neulich 1 to Neulich 5  which has been produced from 1998 to 2004.

With the animation "Sonntag 3" which is one my favorite literature films, Jochen Kuhn won the German Short Film in 2013. Beside film making and painting the artist teaches film at the Film Academy Ludwigsburg.

Poetry Bill Manhire; filmmaker Suzie Hanna

 

 

Fierce Light brought together leading poets from countries that participated in the First World War, including Yrsa Daley-Ward, Jackie Kay, Bill Manhire, Paul Muldoon and Daljit Nagra, to create new works that endeavour to understand the incomprehensible; exploring contemporary events while also contemplating the First World War. These works were presented alongside a series of specially commissioned short films, each made in response to the new poems and themes raised within them.

VESSELA DANTCHEVA / KURT SCHWITTERS - ANNA BLUME

Poetry Film International

 

Animation

Compote Collective/ Kurt Schwitters - Anna Blume

 

 

 

Anna Blume is a visual poetry about the lust of a man chasing a woman. The story takes on surreal journey dictated by the mind of the poet. Lust and ingestion, disguised in love, drive the two characters to an end where love turns to be a very lonesome and strange place. The film is based on and inspired by the emblematic love poem from 1919 "An Anna Blume" by Kurt Schwitters.
