Poetry is an island - still

Poetry is an Island, directed by Ida Does, and produced by Does and Rebecca Roos, will premiere at this year's Trinidad+Tobago Film Festival, which runs September 17th - October 1st.

The subject of Island is Derek Walcott, St. Lucian Nobel prize winner poet and playwright, and the island that inspires him.

Here's more about the film:

Derek Walcott, Poetry is an island, is a feature documentary film about Nobel laureate, poet, playwright, and visual artist, Derek Alton Walcott (1930). The film depicts an intimate portrait of Walcott, as we visit his art studio, his childhood home, and his current residence in St. Lucia. It also includes exclusive archive material from the Nobel Prize Festivities in 1992. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, this film is about Walcott’s poetry.
