When Walt Whitman Was a Little Girl

  • Film

Based on a prose poem by M.C. Biegner, When Walt Whitman Was a Little Girl tells the startling, unuttered truth about America's good gray poet. Starting out as an ordinary nine year old girl, Walt is soon catapulted into the world with her senses ablaze. The film mixes drama, dance, puppetry, and oddball humor to portray the world through the eyes of a 'sensitive kid.'
