Haiku North America


The Nick Virgilio Haiku Association successfully premiered the film "Nick of Time...Nick of Time" at Haiku North America in Santa Fe, NM in September 2017 to an enthusiastic audience of poets from all over the world. The film was part of a double feature with a previous documentary by Sean Dougherty called "remembering Nick Virgilio."

The film is of the play "Nick of Time...Nick of Time" written by Camden native award winning New Jersey playwright and founding producing artistic director of South Camden Theatre Company, Joseph M. Paprzycki

The play probes the roots of Virgilio’s writing and his drive that spurred him to draw such beauty and universal connection from nature, from urban observation and from his personal loss. It features some of Virgilio's work and highlights his influencers, from Camden poet Walt Whitman to his own brother Larry.

The play was produced by board member Henry Brann, directed by John Doyle of Iron Age Theatre, filmed by Marc Brodzik of Woodshop Films and Andrew Geller, featuring actors Bob WeickRocky Wilson and Ned Pryce.  The new production will eventually be part of the inspirational and educational programming at the Nick Virgilio Writers House. Watch for an announcement of a South Jersey screening.
