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.
