Poetry Performance by Sharon Lia Robinson © 1979, © 2014
This is a 1979 film of my early feminist poem “whoever i am, i’m a fat womon.” This poem was written in 1976/1977 and is in my 1978 chapbook, “fat womon/renaissance.” The poem is also in the anthology, “Shadow on a Tightrope, (Writings by women on Fat Oppression), published by Aunt Lute Books.
Please share/post this archival poetry film for others to see.
“whoever i am, i’m a fat womon” was originally filmed by Lynne Conroy in January, 1979. For the Theater Project of the Goddard-Cambridge Graduate Program in Social Change, in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Lynne Conroy and I were theater students there.
This film is a rehearsal for the Radcliffe College Women’s Theater Festival, January 1979, in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
In 2008 I researched and arranged for technical transfer of the 1979 reel to reel 1/2 inch videotape to DVD.
In May, 2014, Reverend Ed Evans of Sequim, Washington, did the film editing for including this film poem on my website and for youtube.
Produced by Sharon Lia Robinson, May, 2014, with screen titles and roses.
