Cadence Video Poetry Festival 2022 will be held both virtually and in-person. VIRTUAL, IN-PERSON, and HYBRID Festival Passes are available here!

This showcase stares mortality in the eye and offers a poem as effigy to life, death, and love. A contemporary investigation into sacred love kindles the intensity spread across these works. From a fantastical color-saturated portrait of the legendary poet Lorca to an uncredited photograph of domestic life in 1930s Budapest, these video poems are lessons in keeping the flame alive across cultures and time.

I have found the sea,

An ocean limitless.

I have opened a treasury unending,

Its jewels blaze with the luster of a thousand thousand suns,

And they blaze here, in my soul.

Of a sudden,

Without any effort of mine own,

I have heard the eternal Secret,

I have learned to know God.

Here in my life hath blossomed

The flower of perfect union.
