Willard Maas | 1906-1971

Poetry And The Film: Amos Vogel, Maya Deren, Parker Tyler, Willard Maas & Dylan Thomas Sessions 1 & 2 At Cinema 16 (10/28/ 1953)

1. Part 1
2. Part 2

This historically significant symposium held at the venerable Cinema 16 film society unraveled the relationship between poetry and avant-garde cinema. Discussed are the types of poetic expressions in film, poetry as a visual medium, "cinepoems", and the influence of Vigo, Dali, Bunuel, Cocteau, and Eisenstein. A discussion surrounds the need to collaborate between writers and filmmakers, the divide between types of cinema, and collaboration as key for the future of film.
