'I have still not given up hope of a short film one day: I have even some rough drafts in my note-book. One of these is a poem by my father, Arseny Alexandrovich Tarkovsky, which he himself was to have read.' - Andrey Tarkovsky


This cameo course introduces the poetic in film through the work of three directors who, in certain films, operated within the realm of dream: Ingmar Bergman, Andrey Tarkovsky and Maya Deren. You will be using your phones to film and submit short visual poems in answer to the dreamscapes of these cinematic visionaries.


This is a three week online course. When you choose to buy this course, we will contact you after purchase to arrange a time to begin which suits you. You can choose between annotated responses to your poems sent to you via email, or live discussion via google hangouts (a gmail email is free and easy to sign up for).
