Whitman on Walls! (WoW!) is the new hybrid event bringing living poets and film together, outdoors. A drive-in movie meets poetry slam. In response to the host of performance cancellations in 2020, Compagnia de' Colombari turned Karin Coonrod’s original production of MORE OR LESS I AM into seven short films.

Recorded over three weeks, with over 50 performers from all over the world, the films embody Whitman's words. Each film is followed by a local poet who stands and "talks back to Whitman" in their own words, challenging or quarreling with him, thus weaving together film and live recitation.
