Organised by artists/writers Victorine van Alphen and Jorik Amit Galama, in collaboration with Perdu, a literary foundation specialised in poetry and the crossovers between literature and other art forms, the day will trace some of the literary roots the essay film, and ask where language becomes poetry, and image turns into film.
