Program Description

In this Art Close Up special, filmmaker Jay Anania presents an intimate portrait of poet Frank Bidart. The half-hour program explores Bidart's life and work, including readings of poems ranging from the early dramatic monologue "Ellen West" to the newly minted "Song." Anania visits Bidart in his Cambridge home, a place filled with the artifacts of his passion for film and music, and joins him in his classroom at Wellesley College. Through an immersion in the poetry, both in performance and on-screen, Art Close Up illustrates why Bidart’s oeuvre has been described as "major music."
