Still | A Poem by Stephen Jenkinson

Art video/poem, 6 minutes

This piece of poetry was written by spiritual activist, poet and author Stephen Jenkinson – and it was recorded and arranged by Gregory Hoskins – for the Campfire Stories film “The Art of Slowing Down Time”. In the film we ended up using an excerpt of it. But in this video essay we’re proud to present the full poem.

The images used in the video are a mix of outtakes from several different Campfire Stories films, along with some newly shot pieces of footage.

Watch below if you’d like to see the film The Art of Slowing Down Time, where the poem originally appeared.
