Yahia Lababidi: From Poetry to Short Films

Last year I interviewed Egyptian poet Yahia Lababidi on First Person Plural. You can see the entire interview here. Now, film-maker Swoon has turned chunks of that interview into a fascinating 3-minute film. It's pretty cool. You can watch it here.

Other interesting videos taken from the Lababidi's poetry are found here.

Lababidi's new book, out soon, is called Trial by Ink: From Nietzsche to Bellydancing.
