Poetry is nourished by experience, and in this sense, it may be said that it is close to documentaries. Films of this genre have not only one poetic look, but they make their essence out of words, verbal language, or silence, establishing affluence of trans-medial and barely-explored relations between documentary and literature. It is not a matter of storytelling, as the way of looking, perceiving, feeling, and updating the memory that appears in movies that push the idea of a documentary to the limits, deprived of authority but filled with a sensibility that emit flashes of the world. The bet for the Documentary poetry program arises from the desire of an intimate and radical company that, with a simple beam of light, spread the capacity to communicate, reactivating the worlds in-between the film and its audiences.
