Anton Kannemeyer talks to Diek Grobler, whose animation poetry puts him in the small, elite company of artists whose works are shown at festivals specifically aimed at poetry films. His and harpist Anne van Schothorst’s animated version of an Antjie Krog poem, Transparant van ‘n tongvis, reached the finals of an international competition in Italy last year. Grobler’s Laaste woord was selected for this year’s Shanghai Film Festival. A separate screening of all his poetry animations based on works by the likes of Breyten Breytenbach, Ronelda S Kamfer, Danie Marais and Martjie Bosman, will be shown throughout the week.
