A film about the poetry of Ben Bushill
This film is centred around one of Ben’s previously unrecorded poems entitled “The One Puzzle”. The poem is an attempt to speak to us all, no matter our background, of the wondrous strangeness and simplicity of being a human on planet Earth, of how we can reconcile a life full of ordinary moments with the miracle that hides in plain sight beneath the skin of things.
The sounscape in the film was created by the incomparable duo of groove magicians Ellen Molnia & Thomas Falk, who were also the musical architects behind Ben’s spoken word CD “Seeds of wild love”.
The film is part “spoken word music video” and part documantery, and in it we’ll meet Ben Bushill at his home in Svenshögen, Sweden.
