Oerdak - a poem in progress


Oerdak – Poem in Progress is a portrait of the creation of a poem by poet Elmar Kuiper. The film is not only about the process of creation itself, but also about how Elmar relates to his bilingual background. He grew up with the Friesian language, but is bilingual in his head.
