poetry on film

February 6, 2019

A lovely film via The Poetry Department

The Poetry Department . . . aka The Boynton Blog

Though the short film “Bat Eyes” was made in 2012, it’s only come to our attention now. Made in Australia and directed by Damien Power with screenwriter Jessica Bellamy, the film uses the text of the poem “When You Are Old” by William Butler Yeats to tell a spare and poignant story. It’s worth 11 minutes of your time. Watch it here.
