Raúl Zurita

I met the Chilean poet Raúl Zurita in London through his translator, the poet & scholar William Rowe. A small piece of speculative filming led to our being given a grant by the University of Diego Portales towards the making of a full-length documentary. On the strength of this William & I spent three weeks in Chile, where I shot this film, which is in Spanish, is an hour long & is entitled ‘Las Rocas, el Mar y las Montañas’. My hope is that this film will be televised widely in Spain & in Latin America. This clip is a ten-minute trailer for the film.
