Visible Poetry Project (USA)
April 1st - Aril 30th, 2018

CUSP is based on the poem with the same title by the Amercian poet Jennifer Tonge. CUSP is a collaboration work and is part of the Visible Poetry Project. The project brings film and video makers together with poets.The Visible Poetry Project was founded in 2017 with the goal of bringing together a collective of filmmakers to create a series of videos that present poems as short films. Drawing from works created by renowned poets, as well as emerging poets, the Visible Poetry Project strives to make poetry accessible, exploring how we can recreate and experience poems through the medium of film.
Throughout the month of April 2018 - National Poetry Month - VPP release one visual poem each day. An exercise in translation and a reclamation of both poetic and film discourses, the resulting thirty videos explore how we read, interpret, visualize, and hear poetry
