Actor Sean Bean, star of films including Lord of the Rings, Goldeneye 007 and Game of Thrones, is giving voice to a poem written by Senior Teaching Fellow Ben Hodgson DOP who coordinates the Cinematography unit at University of Portsmouth. The poem features in the film Taniel which follows the last days of poet Taniel Varoujan, one of over a million who lost their lives during the Armenian genocide of 1915.

The poem, entitled Indelible and voiced by Sean was written in response to Ben’s reading of contemporary accounts of the actual events later to be depicted in the film. ‘I was moved by the fact that after he was seized, Taniel Varoujan had kept on writing on scraps of paper used for wrapping morsels of food. Tragically we lost both the poet himself as well as the poetry he was writing at the time.’ says Ben ‘But it inspired me to imagine what his lost poems might have contained and that in itself was enough to give me a strong emotional connection to him, those persecuted and the murderous events that  subsequently unfolded’.

Sean Bean was approached to voice the film once it had reached the fine cut stage. ‘Garo, the team and I had discussed various voices and Sean Bean was at the top of the list.’ says Ben who recalls shooting the actor for a BBC behind the scenes film of Goldeneye 007. ‘It was when I saw him in Red Riding a few years later that I really sat up and took notice. His character had such presence in that role, even when he was off screen and I was utterly convinced by him. It was down to our Poetry Producer Tatevik Ayvazyan, Garo and the team to make the impossible happen and when I got a call to say Sean had agreed to the role I really couldn’t  believe it. Then, when I heard his voice delivering the poem… well, he infuses the words with such authenticity that it feels like he’s speaking from his soul - not reading from a page.’

Indelible is humanity’s conscience vocalised. The poem has the timbre of a voice shaped and scarred by what it has witnessed humans do in violation of humanity throughout history. It is laden with its own guilt and speaks of horror, shame and sorrow. It is a voice that comprehends the self-destructive side of the human condition but which pleads with itself, and with us the audience, to learn from our own repetitive genocidal history. It is a hurting, sensitive, timeless and truthful voice, and all are invited to recognise ourselves within it.

The words that flow from his heart,
The poems that pump from his pen
Seep into the soil,
Drop by drop by drop.
Teachers, Councilmen, clerical errors,
Bakers, Butchers, those betrayed.
Rich the lifeblood spills
as ink it fills the well.
Indelible.
Dip your pens.
