I WANT TO CALL IT POEMS
directed by Rachel E. Diken
(in production, 2018-2019)
The widely impactful career of poet, actor, screenwriter, playwright, and activist Michael Lally celebrates a milestone in 2018 with the publication of his 30th book, ANOTHER WAY TO PLAY, by Seven Stories Press. After a lifetime of building unlikely communities across the United States, Lally’s book tour reunites him with New York City, Washington DC, Los Angeles, New Jersey, and the Berkshires.
Lally’s mission to facilitate change through accessible language reveals its footprints in pivotal moments of the civil rights, LGBTQ, punk, feminist, and progressive movements—a motivational template for any believer in equality. Featuring original interviews with poets, activists, artists, movie stars, and more, I WANT TO CALL IT POEMS captures the trajectory of a curious, pugnacious spirit that dares to lift its gaze beyond current limitations.
