Indie film makers partner with poets for beautiful film pieces that will be shown by Motionpoems, the world’s only poetry film company, and VIDA: Women in Literary Arts tonight at the Walker Art Center. There’s two screenings tonight, since the showings are shorter than an hour, and Motionpoems Artistic Director Todd Boss and some of the poets and filmmakers will be on hand during the event. 6-9 PM. Free, reservations accepted. —Tracy Oxford
