How poetic is a movie about a poet? This panel discussion focuses on formal and aesthetic questions raised by documentaries about writers, centered around a film, directed by Academy-award nominee, Christine Choy, about the late American poet, Hyam Plutzik. The film includes never-before-seen interviews with major poets, such as Donald Hall and Stanley Kunitz, who were colleagues and admirers of Plutzik’s work.
