Delinquent Films Releases ‘The Book of Conrad’


A new documentary from Delinquent Films will reveal the life and experiences of poet CAConrad.

The Book of Conrad will document the poet’s struggle for truth, as he attempts to uncover the events of his boyfriend’s death. Conrad’s boyfriend, named Earth, was murdered, according to Conrad.

However, the death of Earth is not the only subject of the film. As described on the Delinquent Films website, the documentary follows Conrad as he “wrestles with his inner demons through a series of unconventional rituals and a tour of the deep South.” The film, which runs 82 minutes, is produced and directed by David Welch and Belinda Schmid.

Conrad’s poetry is widely celebrated, and he is the author of several collections. These publications include The Book of FrankAdvanced Elvis CourseA Beautiful Marsupial Afternoon and his latest ECODEVIANCE: (Soma)tics for the Future Wilderness. ECODEVIANCE appeared on Coldfront‘s Top 40 Books of Poetry in 2014.
