Motion Poems: “On Lockdown” by Calum Macdiarmid

Wonderfully minimal and melancholy vignettes by London director/animator Calum Macdiarmid provide a perfect compliment for a poem by Todd Boss reflecting on quarantine and the social trigger of George Floyd’s death.

Todd Boss, founder and artistic director of Motionpoems: “Calum Macdiarmid’s adaptation of my poem ‘On Lockdown’ is the first film in a planned series involving up and coming poets and filmmakers.

“The series, produced by our 8th consecutive female guest season producer Roxanne Artesona, will be themed to support caregivers and encourage a plagued world.

“Commissioned by the Center for the Art of Medicine at the University of Minnesota Medical School, Motionpoems welcomes similar co-production partners, in any industry, to tap the power of poetry and film to engage audiences and constituents on relevant, timely social issues.”
