Streaming Video - 2005

What is poetry, and what place does it have in today's society? In an attempt to answer these questions, two filmmakers stood an old refrigerator on a busy San Francisco street corner, invited passersby to compose poems using magnetic poetry kits, and filmed the intriguing results. Both funny and poignant, this jewel of a program will make a provocative addition to courses on creative writing, poetics, language studies, and the sociology of contemporary culture. Serendipitously inspired and surprisingly profound.
