Graffiti Verite' 6 (GV6): The Odyssey
Continuing his long-running Graffiti Verite series, filmmaker Bob Bryan combines poetry readings, graphic iconography and insightful interviews in a probing exploration of the work and creative processes of 31 contemporary poets. The artists include Cheryl Beychok, Rod Bradley, Elena Byrne, Luis Campos, Victoria Chang, Wanda Coleman, Brendan Constantine, Kamau Daaood, Jim Natal, Aleida Rodriguez and others. ***
"If you can buy only one poetry program this year, buy this odyssey of 31 poets who read, rant, and philosophize about what they do. This treasure trove of contemporary poets spans all ages and ethnicities—just having them together here is exciting. Each poet is articulate and passionate.
Viewers who already love poetry will be grateful to have so much solid poetry at hand and hear it read so well by its creators. Those new to poetry or unfamiliar with the art will get a gentle and stimulating education. High school and college students, as well as adults, should respond well to the film as there is so much here to discuss and explore. The bonus features include complete readings. Recommended for all collections. Poetry lives here!" - LIBRARY JOURNAL
