Do not indulge indigo: a National Poetry Competition film poem by James W. Norton

In a collaboration between The Poetry Society, Poetry Cinema and Motion Poems, filmmaker James W. Norton has created a visual response to Katie Griffiths’s second prize winning poem in the 2018 National Poetry Competition, featuring a reading of ‘Do not indulge indigo’ from the poet herself.

James W. Norton said:

The film is both a warning and a celebration, a indulgence into the many identities  the word ‘indigo’ holds in the poem. This multilayered filmic journey allows the poem’s threads to entwine together into a fantastical trip of transformation.
