About the poets
The film merges observational footage with a poetic voice over, told over panels of animated painting, in which the film’s central character, Roghiyeh, reflects on her situation. Poets Amy Key, Martha Sprackland and Will Harris have been given literal translations of Roghiyeh’s narration, from which they will write new poetry – their work will reflect on her words, rather than on the film. Reflecting on the poetry of Roghiyeh’s language, the commission looks to play on and take shape from her words, to bring an English-speaking, UK audience closer to the poetry of her expression.
All poets have confirmed that they will be attending this screening, to read their work in person
Amy Key’s debut poetry collection Luxe was published by Salt in November 2013. Her poems have been published in various magazines and anthologies including Poetry, The Poetry Review, Best British Poetry 2015, Love Poems (Faber & Faber) and The Poetry of Sex (Penguin). Between Summer 2018 and Spring 2019, Amy, alongside Rebecca Perry, are poets in residence at Halsway Manor, the National Centre for Folk Art.
