Stones that Speak

Personal stories with street poetry in the city of Utrecht


Stones that Speak (46 min.) shows the street poetry of the city of Utrecht, the Netherlands, through the eyes of its inhabitants. In this poetic voyage of discovery, full of personal stories, you can be surprised by a poem on almost every street corner.


It’s an entertaining and heart-warming film that shows how street poetry can enrich a city and is a plea to continue to cherish this art form. A subject that fits Utrecht perfectly, as Utrecht was the first city in the Netherlands to be named Unesco City of Literature in 2017.

Dutch original title: Sprekende Stenen
