“Filmpoem is a rich source of imaginative shorts that combine images and text, usually with music. Some remarkable productions come from Filmpoem’s educational and community projects, as well as its creative collaborations with poets, filmmakers, and composers.” (Maureen E. Doallas)

The poem Portobello is written and read by poet and short story writer Morgan Downie and is a dark drag, a rake through the ghost of Edinburgh’s seaside.

Portobello premiered in March 2010 at the McEwan Hall, Edinburgh, as part of This Collection.
