The seminar continues last year’s seminar and offers teachers of year 7 – 12 pupils new possibilities for familiarising themselves intensively with the transformation of poetry into the medium of film. In the first part of the seminar, the slammer Sebastian 23 will be presenting his own texts and his poetry clips. In a panel discussion he will talk about the young poetry scene in Germany and how poems, spoken word and slam can be productively combined with film. In the second part, we will be presenting new teaching models for poetry films in German teaching. In different working groups for beginners and advanced participants, poetry films will be examined and teaching methods tried out in practice. In a cartoon film workshop, participants will learn the basics of working with poetry in film and produce their own poetry film.
