"Con Spirito": New film about Elizabeth Bishop's time at Vassar College

Actor and film-maker Alex Sarrigeorgiou will premiere her film “Con Spirito” about Elizabeth Bishop’s years at Vassar College during the Vassar Film Festival in Washington DC on 20 October 2019. You can find out more about Alex and her film by going to her Kickstarter campaign page (great to see she got some serious support so that the film could be finished). We hope she will find a way to screen this film somewhere in Canada – perhaps at the Atlantic Film Festival in Halifax, N.S., where John Scott, Barbara Hammer and Lucy Baretto screened their films about Bishop. Indeed, John Scott’s film is close to completion and we’ll keep you informed of its progress.
