If I go out walking with my dead friends | Film Poetry (2021)

The poem “If I go out walking with my dead friends” belongs to the book “A thousand murdered girls” which was published in 1964. The book consists of 65 poems, each named after a woman who was sentenced to death for siding with the left during the Civil War (1947-1949). “If I go out walking with my dead friends” is a humble memorial for the female heroines mentioned in Papa’s lyrics but also for those who nowadays are fighting for freedom and for a better tomorrow. It rings the bell in the consciences of people, pointing out the risk of suppression of freedom within a decaying social system. The past and the present are connected through a visualized dramaturgy of associative patterns. The human body becomes a canvas on which mankind paints its struggles and battles. It’s reality is caught in confrontation between projected values and societal demands. How do society’s proceedings reflect on the individual experience?
