Paul Valéry once said poetry is dancing. East India Youth’s video for ‘Dripping Down’, makes something happen inside me, moves me. It’s not quite narrative film, not quite landscape, not quite cityscape. It is its own world. And its waves rustle, move and unsettle the stoniness. Hold on, in particular, until 3:21.

'Night Mail' is a 1936 documentary film about a London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) mail train from London to Scotland, produced by the GPO Film Unit. A poem by English poet W. H. Auden was specially written for it, used in the closing few minutes, as was music by Benjamin Britten.
