George the Poet – My City – Spoken Word Poetry About London

This is a great video by George the Poet and director Rob Ryan. I’m not usually one for poetry, but I found this really spoke to me. It touches on several themes about London that interest me such as class, race and its forgotten parts. The video is made all the better by the filming done by Paul Kirsop – some really amazing juxtaposed shots.

Apparently Part II – ‘creativity in adversity’ is now in production by Deuce Films, I’m looking forward to it. You can learn more about George The Poet on his website.
