Væbnet med ord & vinger (Torben Skjødt Jensen, DK, 2018)

A drama documetary that takes you on a journey into the life and universe of the Danish poet Michael Strunge. A series of interviews with friends, colleges, old shool mates and former sweethearts paints a picture of the life of the poet. From his upbringing, youth and his way to the center of a new generation of poets in the 1980es, where Strunge became the voice of a new generation and a mirror reflection of their identity and life., while he struggled with anxiety and psychotic attacks that, in the end, pushed him to commit suicide at the young age of 27. The story of Michael Strunge is underlined by a series of his poems and prose interpreted visually. The tekst is delivered by the voice of the poet himself and presents a lyrical production that live on and still resonates with young people today.
