Poésie action – Variations sur Bernard Heidsieck

This documentary film directed by Anne-Laure Chamboissier and Philippe Franck, in collaboration with Gilles Coudert, brushes an intimate portrait of Bernard Heidsieck, pioneer in the sound poetry movement since 1955 and founder in 1962 of action poetry. The film takes viewers into Heidsieck’s “double life” as an artist and a banker, exploring his work through a series of conversations and seldom-seen audiovisual archives.
