Poetry film “Sentimental Education “
An international collaboration between Estonia, Ireland and the UK, Sentimental Education is a four part poetry film featuring the work of 14 established and emerging poets.
Inspired by the work of prize winning Estonian poet, Tõnis Vilu the collective consider connection, mental health and community in this collection of poetry-performance-films tracing deeply personal lines between each artist. Mentored by legendary poet, Joelle Taylor, award-winning poet and theatre maker, Adam Kammerling and Estonian poetry slam leader, Sirel Heinloo, Sentimental Education is a film series unique to the past year, at once defined by the pandemic in form, and equally refusing to be contained by it. With video artist Einar Lints threading the works together, Sentimental Education is a unique and varied poetic experiment that combines bilingual voices never before heard together, transcending borders both physical and sentimental.
The poetry film will be presented at Prima Vista and the Liverpool Literary Festival, WoWfest. All films are translated with subtitles.
