Street poetry

Seen while out and about – street poetry. I rather like the sentiment, I’ve been working on a film that will look (if I ever finish) at how we can tell good, authentic stories about trauma and distress. It’s a complicated thing, because while our brains like simple, linear stories, people’s lives are often far more messy than that.I think at the moment my question is how do you tell a good story about a whole person, rather than an event?

What do you think.

 So a bit of a thought in progress – more to follow I think.
