A portrait of the Faroese poet, painter and performance artist TÃ³roddur Poulsen
A LINE A DAY MUST BE ENOUGH! is a portrait of TÃ³roddur Poulsen (born 1957), a remarkable and important unique voice in Faroese literature, art and music for the last 25 years. He has been referred to as the "black punk poet" of the Faroes, though this epithet is probably too narrow, it is precisely his anarchistic, experimental and subtle approach to poetry as well as life, which characterizes his artistic work.
In a film bursting with lyrics, pictures, and music the director shows us a way into the peculiar universe of TÃ³roddur, and the otherwise not very talkative artist gives us a glimpse of his thoughts on art, God, life and death.
