Wild Whispers Poetry Film Project

The project is exploring adaptation and collaboration in poetry film by sending a poem and a poetry film across the world, to be translated into a new poetry film and passed on. We will be aiming for 12 poetry films in different languages all ‘whispered’ from the previous one.

The first poetry film in the Wild Whispers Project, Frog on Water, is by poetry filmmakers Chaucer Cameron and Helen Dewbery. The final poetry films will be toured to public audiences and a book of the poems and images will be published.

If any poetry filmmakers/and or translators would like to take part in this international poetry film collaboration, please would you contact us, Helen or Chaucer, at elephantsfootprint.com or directly by email.

Chaucer Cameron and Helen Dewbery are editors of the online journal Poetry Film Live. They also work collaboratively under the name Elephantsfootprint. Chaucer is a poet who has been published in journals, anthologies and online. Helen is a member of the Royal Photographic Society and has trained in experimental filmmaking. Together, they facilitate inspiring poetry-film workshops for poets and in community and school settings. Their passion is to bring the rich potentials of poetry film to poets and audiences.
