Premiere of Where Two Rivers Meet

Kayo Chingonyi in Where Two Rivers Meet by Eelyn Lee WEB

My latest film, Where Two Rivers Meet will premiere on Feb 25th at 8pm GMT as part of the online event, Digesting History. The film is a creative documentary about Collections in Verse, a poetry project that took place in libraries across Sheffield just before the pandemic. Weaving the story of the project together with the story a city responding to crisis, the film explores mutual aid, things that connect us across time and place and posits the idea of the library as a commons. Where Two Rivers Meet is narrated by Johny Pitts [Afropean] and features new poetry by Joe Kriss, Rachel Bower and Kayo Chingonyi - inspired by the Anglo Saxon Kingdoms exhibition at the British Library and communities in Sheffield.

Commissioned by Poet in the City in partnership with Sheffield Libraries and the British Library.
