Reed Magazine Presents Poetry Films and Performances
SJSU’s Reed Magazine and Cinequest are thrilled to present a night of poets’ performances and short poetry films. A variety of topics will keep you spinning; from a love affair with a promiscuous pair of stockings to the raging passions of the famous who use a bullet to end their lives. Sex, death, and politics fill the night to assure gripping knuckles and shaking knees! These performers will grab your heart and stomp on it, so be prepared to be a casualty of this word war. Some of these local poet performers include Kim Addonizio, ASHA, Lorenz Mazon Dumuk, Kimy Martinez, Eli Hansen, Lita Kurth, Mark Heinlein, Bill Cozzini, Robert Pesich, and Mighty Mike McGee. We will continue the night with a collage of short poetry films, some of which capture the lives of poets in a documentary format and others are engaged directly in the words of the poet, taking you on a surreal journey. Travel in the decades of decaying trains that seem to have a destination unknown in “Destiny Nation”. Find yourself being mesmerized in the meditating spinning motions of objects in “Screw”. Poetry films include work by Alan Soldofsky, Bill Cozzini, Gary Singh, Kimy Martinez, Chris Knight, Thomas Bryan Michurski, and Danny Madden.
