“First Death in Nova Scotia” film going to Berlin!

Film-maker John Scott and his team at Magpie Productions recently learned that the adaptation of Elizabeth Bishop’s poem “First Death in Nova Scotia,” shot in Great Village in January 2012, is one of thirty movies selected from over 700 for the ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival in Berlin in October 2012.


We will let you know when this adaptation will be available for viewing online -- in the not too distant future.

John and Magpie Productions are in the early stages of a full-dress documentary about Elizabeth Bishop and recently received funding from the Massachusetts Humanities Foundation to help with the development of this project. Again, Congratulations!!

Stay tuned for a big announcement coming soon about the Elizabeth Bishop Legacy recording, being spear-headed by Suzie LeBlanc. We’ll have some exciting news connected to this project!
