Coney Island Film Festival

Audio Visual Terrorism presents "Morpheus of Coney Island," a film narrative shot on Super 8 back in 1982 by the director on Coney Island, co-starring his Grandpa. I wrote a poem about Morpheus, dreams, sleep, time, death and recorded it on my phone. The result is quite entertaining. If you are in town please come to the festival. Films and live entertainment are scheduled through the weekend.

 Festival and ticket information is here. Our film is scheduled here.

Bowery Poetry Presents


A Celebration of


We will be celebrating the legendary Abiodun Oyewole at the Bowery Poetry Club with a film that he co stars in called "Blind Seer of Coney Island" where he plays a mystical poetry bard wandering the sights of Coney Island as the veil between the spirit world and the physical world becomes thin. Coney Island is cast as a twilight space; in between life and afterlife, where spirits barter with the Voodoo Loa.

Also slated to read is an all star lineup of Tongo Eisen-Martin, Liza Jessie Peterson, Sharrif Simmons, Thea Matthews, Ademola Lewis, and of course Abiodun. FAITH NYC will also play.

It's a super huge event for the mere price of $25 if you buy tickets in advance. $30 at the door. Still affordable.
