TIM WEBB / PETER READING - 15TH FEBRUARY

Poetry Film International

 

15th February  by Tim Webb (film), Peter Reading (poetry)

 

 

Love gone wrong in 294 cuts. From a poem by Peter Reading, symbolism and sadism meet live action and stop motion in this tale of rhythmic rejection and its aftermath. The 15th February is from Reading’s book Diplopic. In explaining the title, Reading wrote, 'Diplopic means pertaining to double vision. Every subject is treated from two sides. The funny and the ghastly are symbiotic.' The 15th February is from one side.The film mixes 16mm live action, stop-frame and drawn animation.
