‘watch’ has been selected to be screened at the Szczecin European Film Festival in October and in the UK Jewish Film Festival in November.
Here is an extract from a group poem written as a response to the film by participants in a Masterclass I led at the England Centre for Practice Development, Canterbury Christ Church University –
The film stirs fallen leaves in my heart,
kicks up dust and the smell of damp earth.
Its precious possession is a crystal,
a liquid wave of drifting memories
splashing through my wet fingers
and then gone.
The secret of this film
is that all memory is this way,
small wafts of smoke
that vanish as they arise.
The miracle is
that we remember
The film has a jewelled mechanism
at its heart. Tick tock tick tock.
It speaks of love and loss
and tears and laughter,
in short of life
understanding of love and closeness
that I will always long for
an understanding of how people
are beautiful. always
