Remember is the collaboration between Mab Jones and Alex Taylor as part of the Disappear Here project in Coventry. Alex Taylor’s existing drone footage was given to Mab Jones who then watched it and told us that ‘the words were coming .. the poem flowed out’.
Disappear Here is a project involving 9 poets and 9 filmmakers making 27 poetry films which explore the Modernist Brutalist superstructure of Coventry ringroad. The other films in the project can be found at http://www.disappear-here.org/blog/
