National Poetry Day, Carry Me Away
Film number 10 in the series for National Poetry Day!
Where to go to find an old-fashioned projector and a modern-day projectionist? The cultural cinema (and digital creativity centre) Watershed, Bristol of course.
Ewan Dunford gives a lovely reading of Matt Goodfellow‘s beautiful poem, Carry Me Away.
Thanks, Ewan, Matt and Watershed.
National Poetry Day is organised by the Forward Arts Foundation – if you have children or are a teacher you may be interested in this page on their website which features poetry teaching resources.

This is so beautiful and he says it so well
It is beautiful, Matt is a great poet.
Another beautiful peom read lovingly. I learned how to use one of those projectors about 40 years ago!
Did you, Liz! I think we are very lucky to have the Watershed in Bristol, where new media and old can exist side-by-side! I love the way Ewan reads this poem.
