Abstract

Love Somehow is a thirty-minute, one-woman film in verse. It is adapted from the poem, The Same Boat, by Phil Bowen. It forms part of a project researching adapting poetry to the screen. The film explores Caitlyn’s relationship with poet Dylan Thomas as she struggles with their alcoholism, lack of money and a growing family. I first directed the piece in the theatre with actress Sally George, also in the film. Griff Rhys Jones plays the voice of Dylan. The film and accompanying promo are cutting copies and will be finished by June 2016 for submission to film and poetry festivals.

Research papers about this film and the accompanying work adapting poetry to the screen have been presented at JAM conference Reading April 14th 2016, The International Screenwriters Forum, September 2015, Bath Digital Mix Conference May 2015.
