A film by James Broughton and Joel Singer
Images, Joel Singer; Poetry, James Broughton; Music, Lou Harrison.
This is a cinematic performance piece enlivened by its experiments in poetic speech and poetic vision. Joel Singer creates a multi-faceted portrait of poet James Broughton acting out his verses in unlikely situations and surprising camera inventions. In the course of this divertissement the poet probes the puzzlements of mortality, destiny and the magic of language.
"A true wonderpiece and remarkable portrait." - Michael McClure
