Ellipse Productions presents: FRUI

banner by Angela Koh and Cheikh Clark

Ellipse Productions has worked with the Orange Country Fashion Show, OC Korean Cultural Center, and other communities based in California. I was floored when they approached me about conceptualizing my poem, “Frui.” We sat in Panera and attempted the challenge of turning an 8-lined poem into a short film while making it as emotionally dense and accessible as possible. The adaptation of poetry into film in a cross-media collaboration is still a largely unestablished genre and it was an honor to try and contribute. Finally, I wanted Ellipse to have the reigns to experiment and share their own creative vision as well. Though it’s a first-timer, I hope we can continue to improve and grow from your feedback and support!

Frui

Bret Baldwin Honorable Mention 2009

My mother always loved the rain.

She loved the sharp edges of the stones washed with it

because she liked things clean.

 

It cleans every alley, she said.

God must like things clean. She was sure of this

 

more than the broken zippers

and the washed take-out boxes she saved in the pantry.

She loved to bleed.

 

I hope she finally found God’s cleaning in it.
