Twenty Times


This videopoem was runner-up in the Atticus Review 2019 Videopoem Contest.

Notes from Marc Neys, Contest Judge:

“Twenty Times” is a powerful political and poetic video. The use of ‘lo-fi’ imagery adds to the suspense and darkness of the video. The contrast with the every day life described in the poem sets the perfect base for the message.
