At Apollinaire's Grave

No, it's not James Franco and Aaron Tveit, it's not, clearly, Allen and Peter, it's Peter Bulcock as The Poet (taking Allen's place) and Aden Cardy-Brown as Guillaume Apollinaire (taking Peter's place) in this hommage to Harold Chapman's iconic photograph, "taken in the same place, on the same (Parisian) bench", last year, during a gap in the filming of Nic Saunders' upcoming short feature, At Apollinaire's Grave ("based on the poetry of Allen Ginsberg"). Saunders' 14167 Productions have already been responsible for an award-winning short, Curses and Sermons, based on a poem by fellow-Beat, Michael McClure. At Apollinaire's Grave continues the series. A trailer for the for McClure one is here, the Ginsberg one, here .
