Hot like Film Poetry

If you’re feeling cold, watch this and feel, comparatively, warmer.

Jot Reyes, film-maker, has set a poem by R A Villaneuva into an astonishing monochrome animation work.  The original poem is titled “In the Dead of Winter We” from Villaneuva’s book “Reliquaria” which won the 2013 Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Poetry.

This animation was nominated for the 2015 Webby Awards Best Online Video: Animation.
