Monday Muse: 'All American', A Motionpoem

Motionpoems continues to create stellar work. Among its recent inspired releases is All American, filmed with dancer Jasmine Morand near Switzerland's Lake Geneva and at Cern's Large Hadron Collider, a fascinating locale for the videopoem. Featured is David Hernandez's marvelous poem "All American" (text), which appears in The Best American Poetry 2013 (Scribner, 2013) and was a selection for Pushcart Prize XXXVIII (2014). Richard Johnson is the filmmaker.

Motionpoems has issued a Call for Submissions to "The Great Motionpoems Loopfest 2015", to be held April 10, 2015, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The deadline for submissions is October 31.
