Gerard Wozek

Wozek has received international recognition in recent years for his poetry videos. Co-produced by filmmaker and artist Mary Russell, these short experimental works couple Wozek's spoken word with captured video stills and moving images. These short pieces have played at poetry conferences and short film festivals both in the United States and abroad. Most recently, Planet Out chose to feature his poems "Elemental Reels" on its website's online cinema. Wozek has also had two theatrical productions produced and performed by Lionheart Theatre Troupe in Chicago. The narrative prelude from his first play "The Changeling's Exile" was made into a handbound chapbook, produced and still available online through Deep Wood Press.
