Poetry into Film

Posted in film, German, poetry on February 7, 2011 by sparrowriot

The most redoubtable Ralf Schmerberg has created 20 short films, each featuring a poem from 20 different poets from the likes of Rilke, Celan, Hess, and Kaleko. They are each so tenderly created and meticulously handled that I am smitten. The poems are honored and lit up by the images, music and translations. Each is a treasure.

See his website here. Click on “Poem”. You will see on the lower part of the screen 20 tabs to choose from.
