*Anna Blume is a visual poetry about the lust of a man chasing a woman. The story takes on a surreal journey dictated by the mind of the poet. Lust and ingestion, disguised in love, drive the two characters to an end where love turns to be a very lonesome and strange place. The ﬁlm is based on and inspired by the emblematic love poem from 1919 “An Anna Blume” by Kurt Schwitters

Interview with Jo Clark, 93, on her memories of her friend Kurt Schwitters
He didn’t really talk art much to me, apart from the barn. He was very interested in the barn. I think he knew he wasn’t well and he wouldn’t last long and he was absolutely obsessed with that. That was why he didn’t like doing the portraits, because it took time off the Merz.
