poetry on film

May 24, 2018

Congratulations to Spokane filmmaker Kendra Ann Sherrill, whose short film, The Pink Tablet, will screen at the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) on Monday, May 28, 2018, at 3:30pm at the SIFF Cinema Uptown and again on June 6. One of six Washington filmmakers participating in the Fly Filmmaking Challenge, Sherrill was tasked with making a 5-7 minute documentary on a budget of $500 in 10 weeks.

Sherrill selected Spokane poet Ellen Welcker as her subject and The Pink Tablet is a 7-minute film based on Welcker’s poem of the same name.

For a suggestion of the film’s material, you can watch Welcker’s “feral opera,” also called The Pink Tablet — part play, part dance, and five original choral compositions — on YouTube.
