John Scott’s Elizabeth Bishop films: Update

Over the past couple of years, we have posted a number of pieces about John Scott’s Elizabeth Bishop films – a series of shorts based on Bishop poems: “Sandpiper,” “One Art,” “First Death in Nova Scotia.” These films have been shown in Nova Scotia and across the world in festivals and at other film events. Most recently, all three will be screened on 25 April 2013 at in Minneapolis at the Minneapolis Central Library. Further, “First Death” was also screened in Münster, Germany, in the townhall on 2 May 2013 in a best Zebra Film Festival (http://www.muenster.de/stadt/kulturamt/poetry_zebra.html).

John is also busy working on his adapation of “In the Waiting Room,” which he say he hopes to have finished early in May. He plans to submit it to film festivals, including the Atlantic Film Festival, which takes place in September 2013.
