wrapped in bandages like half-lived dreams
knuckles sinewed with frostbite
ready to begin the blood-sport basse danse

~ from 'Canvas' by Peter Ramm, Winning Teacher

 

In partnership with Val Morgan, Red Room Poetry screened Poetry Object 2017 winning poems in selected cinemas across Australia from 21 December 2017 - 10 January 2018. 

Led by Oscar-shortlisted animator Robertino Zambrano, KAPWA Studioworks transformed the winning poems into compelling and playful animations. Through our project Poetic Moments, these poetic excerpts beamed into cinemas across the country in our first ever digital exhibition.

As a special school holiday feature, the animation also graced the screens of digital kiosks at the National Museum of Australia.

The film was selected for the Annecy Film Festival under the Commissioned category. The Festival is in France 11-16 June.
