Motionpoems adapts Geffrey Davis poem into film

Motionpoems's Season 7 premiered in Minneapolis, MN, on October 27, 2016. Each short film for the new season was adapted from work by a Cave Canem poet, and one of them featured "From 35,000 Feet/Praise Aviophobia," a poem from Geffrey Davis's Revising the Storm (2014). Directed by Chad Howitt, the film is available online (and below):

"After animator/producer Angella Kassube first animated one of Todd Boss's poems in 2008, the duo started introducing other poets to other video artists -- and a new hybrid form was born! Motionpoems is a 501c3 nonprofit arts organization based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We partner with top-quality for-profit and non-profit publishers, film companies, and literary organizations. We create opportunities for artists to meet and work together."

Revising the Storm is available at the BOA Bookstore.
