Paris-based French film director Kendy Ty has a penchant for brilliant visual portrayals of creatives and his latest film ‘Portrait of a Poet’, is another stunning example of his work. The short film features French poet Mai Vallee who narrates the piece with her own poem that starts “Thank you dad thank you mum, for the chaotic childhood, ’cause my life is like the ascent of a mountain, and it’s true my feet hurt sometimes, but although the way is long and bruising… the road is beautiful.” The phrase poetry in motion has never been more apt.
