Frank Stanford: "YOU" Teaser Trailer and Sneak Peek

Oh Sweet Jesus the levees that break in my heart 

  "YOU" is an upcoming feature-length experimental documentary film on the life and work of poet Frank Stanford.  

Frank Stanford was born in Mississippi, but grew up in Memphis, Tennessee and Mountain Home, Arkansas, before attending graduate-level poetry workshops at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville—the same town in which he took his own life.  

Stanford is a mythical figure in the world of southern poetry. "YOU" seeks to explore the idea of man as poet, and poet as man.  

"YOU" features interviews and readings from Frank Stanford's close friends and family, as well as prominent figures in the literary community.  See a special sneak peek of a portion of the film at the Frank Stanford Literary Festival in Fayetteville, Arkansas, on Saturday, September 22nd.
