'Holy Mats'
15 December 2022 2 mins 30s
Poetry in motion.
by Jason Stone

This fiendishly clever short film by Johan Kramer about a prolific writer of haiku who was unleashed from his brain freeze by a thoughtful gift from his grandmother, adheres to the structure of the haiku by being presented in three parts, with shots representing syllables, but it has more than mere architecture in common with the distinctive Japanese poetry.

It also has the same wry sense of humour combined with a sense of something deeper being in evidence... not something that's easy to capture on film. Katja van den Broeke's excellent cinematography contributes hugely to the film's peculiar vibe and, like an authentic haiku, it makes it something you want to revisit repeatedly.
