Seeing Poetry

The Dice Player (A visual poem) لاعب النرد from Nissmah Roshdy on Vimeo.

Martina Pfeiler celebrates visual poems like The Dice Player (embedded above) for helping to keep "the legacy of writers alive":
Poetry films resist clear-cut categorizations and challenge preconceived notions about what poetry is or should be, while providing numerous answers as to why poetry continues to matter today. In fact, they have become one of the most thriving and imaginative forces within the creative realm of 20th and 21st centuries’ media technologies, teaching us how to circulate poetic voices and powerful visions in a globalized world.
