Light Glyphs is a series of interviews with filmmakers on poetry, and poets on film. Featuring interviewees such as John Ashbery, Iain Sinclair, Lisa Samuels, and Guy Maddin, this intriguing set of interviews delves into the connections and shared interests of creatives behind the camera, and holding the pen. Light Glyphs seeks to explore 'ways of thinking, writing and seeing opened to new and changing possibilities [...] or in where the light escapes and how it obscures, in what is missing from the frame or smudging the lens.'


David Spittle is a poet, filmmaker and essayist. Spittle's first poetry collection - All Particles and Waves - was published by Black Herald Press in 2020, following the pamphlet B O X (HVTN, 2018). After the BBC premiere of his first film, Light Noise, a book of interviews with filmmakers and poets, Light Glyphs, was published by Broken Sleep Books (2021). Vimeo | Twitter @DavidSpittle7
