Vachel Lindsay: Look Into Your Heart

Lindsay, Vachel: Look Into Your Heart

"Highly Recommended. Filmmaker Lucas Persinos, very much like Vachel Lindsay, was ahead of his time, motivated by a desire to cultivate goodness and to fight social injustice and environmental pollution. His well-crafted tribute to Lindsay helps ensure a lasting legacy." -Chip Taylor
Born in Springfield, Illinois, in 1879, (Nicholas) Vachel Lindsay was internationally known in the early-twentieth century not only for his poetry, but also for his beautiful art work that accompanied many of his poems, and for his unique, animated way of performing his poetry instead of just reading it to audiences. Today, the Vachel Lindsay Home is designated a National Historic Landmark. His most important work, The Congo and Other Poems, established him, along with Carl Sandburg and Edgar Lee Masters, as part of the Chicago "Renaissance." As this biographical documentary shows, there is a growing appreciation for many of Lindsay's themes, including his love for individualism, simplicity and nature, along with his abhorrence of hypocrisy and pettiness. Produced by Lucas Persinos. 00/08DE JSCA 30 min.
