Poetry films


A selection of poetry films made in collaboration with film-maker Howard Vause.  'Green Spin', supported by Niall McDevitt, won third prize in the Liberated Words International Poetry Film Festival 2013.


Liberated Words also commissioned Howard and Helen to make a poetry film in response to a series of workshops with dementia patients at the Royal United Hospital in Bath, which resulted in 'The Golden Bird'.  The film is reviewed here, and you can watch it via this link or below.

In March 2020, Helen and Howard's 'Kali Exorcism' was screened at Bristol's Lyra Poetry Festival, and Helen contributed to a panel discussion on poetry films on the theme of 'climate and the environment'. You can listen again to it here:
