Yesterday, the third of a series of poetry videos by Nyk de Vries as Poet of Fryslân premiered on Omrop Fryslân TV. The third poetry film is based on the poem ‘Binman’.
Seven poems by the Poet of Fryslân will be filmed in the project with filmmaker Herman Zeilstra. During this year, several poetry videos will be broadcast on Omrop Fryslân TV. The videos can then also be viewed online via this website, Leeuwarden City of Literature, LF2028, the Leeuwarder Courant and the Omrop Fryslân website.
‘Binman‘ was written in honor of 150 years of urban cleaning in Leeuwarden for the Stichting Poetry Tableaus Leeuwarden. Text and music: Nyk de Vries. Translation into Leeuwarders: Anne Feddema. Translation into English: David Colmer.
