A poet's passion

A metro-area writer uses empathy to connect with readers and youth.


Features

If you saw Robert Swain Lewis, you wouldn’t be surprised that he’s an Army veteran. You might not even be surprised to learn he works for the Oklahoma County Office of Juvenile Affairs. But, you would almost definitely be surprised that he is a published poet.

OCU, can you see ...

... by the projector’s early light?

Oklahoma City University has announced the lineup for the 30th-anniversary installment of its Film Series. It kicks off Sunday, Sept. 25 with the 1957 Oscar-winning musical romance “Black Orpheus,” (poster pictured) colorfully directed by Marcel Camus.

The rest of the scheduled films are:
• Lee Chang-dong’s “Poetry,” Oct. 9
• George Sluizer’s “The Vanishing,” Oct. 23
• Ken Loach’s “Kes,” Nov. 6
• Jean Renoir’s “The River,” Jan. 22, 2012
• Majid Majidi’s “Children of Heaven,” Feb. 5, 2012
• Claudia Llosa’s “The Milk of Sorrow,” Feb. 19, 2012
• Kenji Mizoguchi's “Sansho the Bailiff,” March 4, 2012

“Poetry” recently showed at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, and I can vouch for the South Korean drama’s excellence. “The Vanishing” is sly programming for the pre-Halloween slot, as the Danish thriller from 1988 bears one chiller of an ending (skip its 1993 subpar American remake, however).

All films are free, and shown in the Kerr-McGee Auditorium in the college’s Meinders School of Business, N.W. 27th Street and McKinley Avenue. —Rod Lott
