Poet of Sound and Image is a feature film with live sequences by which KiNo manifests his potential as a cultural and spiritual rebel in person.
Booming across 7 years of documentation, KiNo’s universe bursts upon and outside the screen with a personal cinematic language and an unmistakable musical touch unified by poetic conscience.
The film is partially a documentary and a retroactive testimony of a young poet who has, at each step of his development, consistently clashed with the symptoms of a confused civilisation; transitioning from 20th to 21st century, analogue to digital, local to global.
In the beginning, KiNo arrives in New York to embark on his creative journey.. few days before September 11, 2001. In the end, through his trials and tribulations, it is divulged that the cultural, artistic and spiritual integrity of humanity is suffering greatly from a process of dehumanisation. The common denominator is led to replace real life experiences with internet antics and gadgets.
Essentially, by isolating the creative elements of image, sound and words, KiNo reveals the current condition of the human psyche in the claws of vacuous industries controlling the surface reality; every idiosyncrasy of the amnesiac Western Civilisation from news to entertainment.
