Ed Bowes is a writer, director and cinematographer, who has been making his own movies for over three decades. His first movie Romance was the first full-feature-length narrative shot in black & white video. Subsequent movies have included Better, Stronger and Spitting Glass which was partially funded by Channel 4 in England and shown on major BPS stations throughout the U.S. Bowes worked overseas after the Berlin Wall came down for the Soros Foundation’s Open Society Fund and Interviews, consulting and training at independent television stations in Bosnia, Kazakstan, Russia, Aremenia, Croatia, and Macedonia.
His most recent projects are the 45 minute The Value of Small Skeletons, a script co-written with poet Anne Waldman, describing the world, relationships, and interior imagination of a character named Merit, and Akilah Oliver: 3 Readings, a portrait of the African American poet, who passed away in Februrary of 2011.
How do our minds experience time? How solid are the boundaries between nonfiction and fiction, language and picture? The Value of Small Skeletons (2010), featuring a script co-written by poet Anne Waldman, applies those questions to the observed fragments of a brief melodrama. After the screening of this 50-minute film, director Ed Bowes will take questions from the audience.
Akilah Oliver: 3 Readings, 2011 (15 minutes) A portrait of this important poet reading from her work who passed away ("without warning") last February. Shot in Boulder in 2011. Edited by Ed Bowes & Anne Waldman.
