Professor Johannes DeYoung presents work in the second annual International Poetry Film Festival at Beyond Baroque in Venice, CA on April 28. The event features 43 films from 13 countries, spanning animation, documentary, narrative, and experimental films that explore the complex nature of combined poetry and cinema.
“Beyond Baroque” is one of the United States’ leading independent Literary Arts Centers and public spaces dedicated to expanding the public’s knowledge of poetry, literature and art through cultural events and community interaction. Founded in 1968 as an experimental literary magazine, “Beyond Baroque” is based out of the original City Hall building in Venice, California. The Center offers a diverse variety of literary and arts programming including readings and workshops.
