Alison’s Cycle

// 29 February 2008

There is a moving and interesting film over at Menstrual Poetry – a poetry cycle reflecting on one woman’s experience of abuse and life-experience.

“Alison’s Cycle” is a reading of poetry from inside of the soul that reflects 5 days in a woman’s cycle. Emotional outpouring from past memories and childish doubts. Expressions of emotions bottled inside released in an artistic film. Alison Floersch opens her thoughts of past hates and coping with tormenting memories [and] child abuse issues.”

Beware of hissy sound quality – doesn’t disturb the soundtrack but is kind of nasty…

Dany, maybe you’d consider writing a feature article for us? We always welcome contributions from new and interesting writers.

Thank you for the offer. I will let the author of the poetry know she may have a place here. As the film maker, I am going to illuminate a variety of issues over the next few years. I will keep you in touch with each new project.

Thank you once again,

Dany Nievs
