Epilog: Faszination Poetryfilm?

Liebe Leserinnen, liebe Leser, als wir im März diesen Jahres unseren Call for Essays formulierten, um zur ersten Diskussionsrunde des Poetryfilmkanals einzuladen, konnten wir nicht voraussehen, welche Richtung der Blog nehmen oder wer sich überhaupt an ihm beteiligen würde.

Poetry Films: Cultural Resistance and Creative Reinvention

In fact, they have become one of the most thriving and imaginative forces within the creative realm of 20th and 21st centuries’ media technologies, teaching us how to circulate poetic voices and powerful visions in a globalized world.
