A short film by Dave Lee about Hull’s fourth best poet, Dean Wilson, and his sublime poetry.

“Dean’s a beautiful soul and I think he’s the only genius in Hull. I had an idea for filming one of his poems and phoned him up and said ‘do you want to do this now?!’ It’s a little portrait of Dean, it’s like a little Mike Leigh short. He’ll make you laugh,cry, move you. And by the end of the night he’ll leave you on the floor. He’s our Ivor Cutler, our John Cooper Clarke. The more people that get to know him the better. He’s not the sort of character that seeks out fame and attention so we need to impose that on him.” - Dave Lee
