“No es” (It isn’t) is a cumulative poem by Mariano Blatt, whose constant writing process extends over a lifetime. The texts of the poem are constantly added which covers anything: images, people, memories, etc. Having a list of “what seems to be but isn’t,” the film observes a perpetual movement of spaces and people to create another poem.
In this short film, Williams combines the rhythmical reading of “No es,” a cumulative poem by co-director Mariano Blatt which is written over the course of his lifetime, with the images of people of Guinea-Bissau. Screened for the first time at the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement, Parsi borrows the technology and sentiments of VR cameras to capture people constantly moving on the streets. The result is a truly innovative work that explores the images, texts and speech sounds generated by contact between the young Argentinean poet’s language and the unfamiliar images of the Western African country ─ a poetry slam that ignites the youths of the Internet generation through images.
