Video and Audio Media Coming on Strong
Estuary Press publishes materials on the photography of Harvey Richards and on the books and media work of Nina Serrano. Recently, we have added a new embedded video and audio posts to our web site blogs and new posts.
On the Harvey Richards Media Archive, a short video about active duty GI’s protest movement against the war in Vietnam features footage from Harvey Richards’ film “No Greater Cause” about the October 12, 1968 GI’s for Peace march in San Francisco, coupled with footage from David Zeigler’s film “Sir! No Sir” taken 37 years later of the leaders of that march remembering what they did. Donald Duncan and Susan Schnall appeared in both films. Seeing their actions in 1968 and reflections on it 37 years later is a moving tribute to their courage and integrity and to the impact of GI’s on the fight to end the war.
Recent blog posts on the Nina Serrano Art Activist Blog feature both audio recordings and videos. Nina’s Dance Poetry video features her performance with Dance Generators on April 19, 2013 at the University of San Francisco of her poem “To Die of Joy in the River”.
Another recent blog post features an excerpt from her radio show “Open Book: Poet to Poet” broadcast of March 1, 2013 of her poem “Red Flower of the Last Blood” from her new book Heart’s Journey, Selected Poems 1980-1999. The blog post is entitled “Menopause and the Juicy Red Bloody Mess”. The poem is reprinted on the blog post and features her reading of the poem along with Jack Foley’s response to it.
And lastly, we have published a video of Nina’s poem “Stop Monsanto” performed live at the March Against Monsanto Rally on May 25, 2013 in Oakland, CA.
