Poetry Noir giving words to silent films

March 17, 2010

Love this idea:

The mission of Poetry Noir is to explore the universal moments presented or “spoken” in Black-and-white films with poetry writing.

We will feature a film clip and challenge you to observe the film and to capture in words the poetry evoked by the cinematic moments.

The current film clip is from Buster Keaton’s 1928 classic, “The Cameraman” and if you participate, let us know how it worked out for you.

View the clip and submit your poem at the Poetry Noir website–  a program of the Montgomery County (Pennsylvania) Poetry Program
