Matter is a Relative Matter with Maurice Manning

Maurice Manning is a Pulitzer Prize-nominated poet and a vocal environmentalist. Born-and-raised in rural Kentucky, his poetry is firmly rooted in the folklore of that unique pioneer state and is often inspired by the Appalachian landscape. Created by Rob Curry and Tim Plester, the film explores the creative process, the fertile connection between music and poetry, and the relationship between imagination and the natural world.
