The Reel Thing
by Mick Haining
IRON Press expands its ever growing haiku list with an unusual collection of film haiku from Mick Haining. We are combining with the Whitley Bay Film Festival in August to launch the pint-sized book (A6 format) and to make it more fun the launch will take the form of a quiz - each haiku flashed up on a giant screen and members of the audience asked to identify that particular film. Fancy yourself as a film buff? How many of these can you identify?
