Kino Babylon Mitte is hosting from 14 to 17 October 5. ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival. For the competition of the best poetic movies were sent more than 900 films from 71 countries, from films to children to horror and erotic films. The new elements of this 5th edition: the increased role of the poets in presenting directly their works to the filmmakers, the presentation of the results of the collaboration between Israeli filmmakers and German poets and the works of students from German film schools in transforming the words of poems into images.
I have been today evening at the opening of the exhibition of the Dutch artists eddie d, Matt Hulse and Pim Zwier "Public Poetry Matters", a visual protests against the anti-poetic trends of current politics (case-study, the artists' country).
