Green Lane Films enters the Gift Economy with Poetry video

After seeing Åsmund Seip perform his poetry in Totnes, Green Lane Films Director, Emma Goude, joined the gift economy by making a free video to show her appreciation. 

‘Normal’ is a powerful display of the longing to fit in that you feel when you go agains the grain and live a life that doesn’t perpetuate the environmentally damaging industrialised system. But it is also a sarcastic comment on the way most people live.

The video is shot against a grey brick wall, i.e. the industrialised world, which his poem critically comments on.

The poem ‘Normal’ appears in Åsmund Seip‘s book “100 Days for the Earth – Love Poetry Revolutionis available to purchase on Amazon. Åsmund began writing the book of poems when he made a simple but effective commitment to write a poem a day for one hundred days. He gave everyone a copy of his book to everyone in the audience, as part of the gift economy. The theory is that by giving away generously, it comes back tenfold.
