A creative documentary about Collections in Verse, a poetry project that took place in libraries across Sheffield just before the pandemic. Weaving the story of the project together with the story a city responding to crisis, the film explores mutual aid; things that connect us across time and place, and posits the idea of the library as commons.
Where Two Rivers Meet features new poetry by Joe Kriss, Rachel Bower and Kayo Chingonyi, inspired by the Anglo Saxon Kingdoms exhibition at the British Library and the communities of Sheffield. The film is narrated by Johny Pitts [Afropean], features broadcaster Silé Sibanda and community eating hub, Open Kitchen Social Club.
