What We Said to the Thunder

What We Said to the Thunder is a short film poem, depicting the propaganda campaign waged by British, EU and US imperialism to justify war upon Russia in the wake of the Skripal incident on 4 March. The film builds upon themes in a recent published experimental poem, The War Report.
