A traditional film follows the arc of a typical narrative, following chronological events from chapter to chapter. The visual poem is an original concept by Folkelore Films that moves through the narrative from stanza to stanza, more like a sonnet, driven by a shapeless love for the subjects and their stories.
Art, original music, ethnography and poetry meet to form Folklore Films. This visual-anthropological film project that tells better stories to people about people one subject at a time. The stories are driven by visual poetry.
