    20015

    3rd Ó Bhéal International Poetry-Film Competition Winner

    My poetry-film In The Circus Of You won this years prize. Special thanks to poet Nicelle Davis and Karl Preusser for the music and sound.

    The judges statement follows:

    Too many poetry films apply great cinematography to bad poetry and sometimes great poetry is left down by less than fully committed visuals. Here is a poetry film where the aesthetic accomplishment and craftmanship of the cinematography and the poetry are equal. Gross's animation remains faithful to Davis's text while not compromising its own ambition. Gross has demonstrated great taste and discernment in investing her talent as a cinematographer in poems which demand your attention with captivating subject matter and their awareness of language as a musical medium. - Patrick Cotter and Padraig Trehy, 2015 Judges
