The Great Margin Poetry Films:
Bulletins From The Edge
Throughout 2020, Bambo Soyinka worked alongside writers and film editors to carefully craft a collection of 15 poetry films, adapting poetry and prose submitted to the Great Margin. With empathy at its heart,the project was an exploration of community writing and sense-making through the pandemic. The finished films are acts of translation that represent an interpretation of the original piece of work rather than a literal rendering of the writer’s original intention. Each film encapsulates a different facet of isolation from the fringes of the writing world.
