PEOPLE ON THE BRIDGE
2014
Genre: Experimental
Dir: Beata Pozniak
Role: Poet
complete credits »

An experimental short film based on a poem “People on the Bridge” written by Nobel Prize winner Wislawa Szymborska and narrated by Beata Pozniak. Visuals of Beata performing are intermingled with images of a 19th century Japanese woodblock print entitled “People on a Bridge” by Hiroshige Utagawa which provided the original inspiration for the poem. The bridge symbolizes a powerful connection between places, historical periods and cultures. Szymborska's musings on our inability to come to terms with the infinite trajectory of time are set against the powerful image of Utagawa’s art. This poem was performed live by Beata at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles.
