"AmeriKa" by RaD aka Ryanaustin Dennis – Video

I love a good poetry or spoken word video.  You have to search through so much to find a real gem.  Let me be clear, there are thousands of great poems being recorded to video out there, but very few great poems with great video.

I present to you today, a decent poem being performed on great video.  AmeriKa by RaD (aka Ryanaustin Dennis) is a typical angry-at-America poem shot beautifully and artistically by Christopher George for his Senior Graphic Design Thesis.

I’m hoping to see more poets team up with video artists to create the visual art we need.

*Caution: the following video contains strong language and visuals that my be offensive to some*

What are your thoughts on the current state and future of video poetry?
