A film about poets? And still alive? It is the bet of the director Xavier Gayan who led for several months a series of interviews with contemporary poets to understand, by their words, by their gestures, by their looks, what incites to make poetry in a world where this practice seems more incongruous than ever.


With Benny Aguey-Zinsou, Maram Al Masri, Edith Azam, Stéphane Bataillon, Paul de Brancion, Emmanuel Comtet, Jacques Darras, Marc Delouze, Souleymane Diamanka, Mireille Fargier Caruso, Yvon Le Men, Charles Pennequin, Jean Portante, Lysiane Rakotoson.
