“Welcome to this House” has another Canadian screening

Barbara Hammer’s documentary about Elizabeth Bishop, "Welcome to this House," has several more screenings this year, including another Canadian date:

1. Festival do Rio, Brazil, October 1-14, TBA
2. MIX, Copenhagen, October 2-11, TBA
3. Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, October 8-18, TBA
4. The Canadian date: Inside Out Ottawa, Canada, Oct. 24-25

There was a good turn-out for the screening at the Atlantic Film Festival on 19 September, attesting to the interest in Bishop in Nova Scotia. Thanks to the AFF for programming this film. I understand that Barbara's film will be out on DVD in 2016. When we have information about that release, we will post it here.
