FREE Film Screening: Parallel Octave presents ANTHOLOGY II, A Collaborative Short Film
It’s a music video! It’s a Greek chorus! It’s ANTHOLOGY II. For the second year running, the Baltimore-based chorus Parallel Octave has invited filmmakers to create short films based on recordings of poems. This year’s <strong>ANTHOLOGY II will feature animation, stop-motion and live action, both student and professional filmmakers from Los Angeles, Maryland, Minnesota, Utah, and Wisconsin, and the poetry of Emily Dickinson, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Yehuda Ha-Levi, T.S. Eliot, and many more.
The ANTHOLOGY II film will premiere on Thursday, August 2nd at 8 PM (snacks and drinks commence at 7:30) at the <a href="http://www.creativealliance.org“>Creative Alliance. The screening will be accompanied by a live performance and recording session with Parallel Octave, in which the audience will be cordially invited to make some noise and record a poem with us. Everyone who attends will receive a kazoo, a noisemaker, a free copy of the poems and the film soundtrack–and, of course, free admission! All ages, including children, welcome. http://www.paralleloctave.com; www.creativealliance.org.
This year’s event made possible due to the generous sponsorship of the following Johns Hopkins departments and offices: Film and Media Studies, Summer Programs at JHU, Writing Seminars, and the JHU Libraries.
