I am your Poet

Main Tumhara Kavi Hoon
English (subtitled), 40 min, 2011, India

This film was to be on a poet and his poetry. It became a story of a person who lives a poem. We try to understand the person we see the poem, we try to understand the poetry; the poet comes and stands in front of us. And as we journey through the poetry and the poet, we end up with a mirror. In the mirror, a roughly-hewn life, small, innocent.... a dream-like existence, in the scrub forest, among the silent ruins, the old streets in the middle of the polis.
 
The poetry slowly shows us the way, and the way slowly becomes poetry Ramashankar Vidrohi has never written poetry, he speaks out poetry. He is poet of our unknown, unorganized, underground nation. He is the poet of those whose constituency is always bearing the cost of empire builders, the women, the children, and the billions who lie on the steps to the centre of power structure.
