** Co-presented with the Romanian Film Festival Seattle, curated by American Romanian Cultural Society **

Video poetry presents an opportunity for the artistic disciplines to join in an uncanny intermingling. This screening is a place for the weird, awkward, and unreal to dialogue freely. Pieces in this selection mix media, languages, identities, and topics into an inspiring melange for the senses.
