Episode 8 of #CreativityWillSaveUs, the project thought, written and produced by Tommaso Cartia and Daniela Pavan, Artistic Directors of Creative Pois-On, where prominent figures from the world of art, culture, and entertainment come together to reflect on the central value that art brings to humanity during the challenging times of the global pandemic emergency. And, in support of the global community of artists who are seeing all of their venues temporarily shutting down to safely prevent the spreading of the Corona Virus.
This is a very special episode, featuring the evocative genius of NYC-based Film Director Jeremiah Kipp who shares with us his latest short-movie "Poem XV" by Pablo Neruda inspired by the current state of lockdown. The movie stars a constellation of exquisite actors:
Adam Auslander (NBC's "The Blacklist"; "Okja"); Nicole Greevy ("Uncanny County"); Philip Hoffman ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"; "The Plot Against America");
Ben McHugh ("Mamma Mia!" "Pickup" "Blue Bloods"); Pooya Mohseni (Law&Order); Joy Shatz ("Rich Boy, Rich Girl; "Hell House LLC II: The Abaddon Hotel").
The short-movie was edited by Ben McHugh.
