HIPPOPOETESS - the lost poem
Francesca Fini 2020
The lost poem is an extra clip, a 'poetic update' of the movie HIPPOPOETESS, that I completed in October 2018. This is what I call the trash-bin file: editing produced with the sequences, the sounds, the mistakes, and the voice-overs not included in the final version of the film.
Plump, stubborn, unconventional, offbeat, ambitious, unstoppable: the hippopotamus poetess is one of us! Hippopoetess is an experimental animation-based film that tells the story of the American writer Amy Lowell and her desire to succeed in a world dominated by men. My personal story as an artist overlaps with that of this great poet born in Boston in the late nineteenth century, challenging space and time: her intellectual fury, her stubbornness, her ambition and the obstacles she had to face. In particular, the film deals with an unpleasant theme as old as the world: body-shaming against women; Amy was overweight, and this physical peculiarity was used to scoff her, right in the intellectual circle of the men poets she frequented. They called her Hippopoetess, so to say, hippopotamus poetess. As a survivor of bullying myself, I feel deeply close to this extraordinary woman.
