The relationship between image and text has been an interest of experimental filmmakers almost from the beginning of cinema. Different methods of combining film and language / poetry have been proposed and introduced as terms in various phases of the 20th century, such as the film poem, poetry film, film essay, the video poem, text film, etc. In each of these types/genres, filmmakers experimented with methods of combining verbal language and image, such as the use of text on the screen (a tradition that begins already in silent cinema and reaches its peak within fluxus films), the use of poetic voice over and spoken word (often with the poets themselves reading their own works), the idea of actual language translations to pictures, as well as the research of poetic forms in the cinema, i.e. the investigation of a concept of a more "vertical", lyrical filmmaking form that reminds of the tradition of modernist poetry.
