● The Answer – Charles Bernstein a Capella [3:32]

In April 2001 I was in New York together with Lars Movin and Thomas Thurah to make a documentary on The New York School of Poets. ‘Something Wonderful May Happen’ premiered August 2001 in Copenhagen. In one scene of the documentary a poem is read in praise of The Twin Towers and with the WTC as the backdrop. The recording in Riverside Park of Charles Bernstein reading his poem ‘The Answer’ was interrupted by the sound of a jet plane crossing Manhattan so we didn’t use it. But here it is.
