Bohemia Poetry Documentary


Bohemia Poetry – Poems from one who lives an unsettled life documented on film.

The tone of the documentary, Bohemia: The Life of a New York City Poet:

poetry It was the year 2008 and things were taking its toll on the people of New York City.

The war in Iraq, the war in Afghanistan, the beginning of a police brutality crisis igniting with death of Sean Bell, the beginning of an economic crisis, the muscular flex of gentrification, and much more that plagued the society causing a depression of the minds and a panic of the overall public.

Through the years people lived through the social ills. Some protested, some complained, some voted; they did many things to contest their current situation.

However, the artists spoke out against these social ills through their creativity.

As life dealt the people a bad hand the poets of the New York City Community spoke up and spoke out against it all. Emphasizing on their life stories and current situations; Bohemia: The Life of a New York City Poet documented this time through filming some of the many poets who ran the streets painting their creativity through the New York City open mic scene and poetry circuits.

These were your every day artists and most extraordinary artists who graced the stages of: The Bowery Poetry Club, The Nuyorikan Café, The Hydrogen Jukebox, The Back Fence, Kairos Poetry Café, Nomads Choir and many other venues in the New York area.

Many of these venues are nonexistent now and some of these poets are no longer here with us as some poets who were documented in this film have died and have been imprisoned.

Bohemia: The Life of a New York City Poet documents a time that will never come back. It is a documentary film on poetry that signifies a milestone in our culture.
