The Drift: Purple City

Screen Shot 2019-05-01 at 6.52.09 PM

I’m excited to share Purple City, a video poem celebrating a love-hate relationship with Winnipeg, my hometown in Treaty One Territory.

Filmed in the summer of 2018 by Andrew and Sam of Ice River Films, it’s one of four pieces that comprise “The Drift”: a spoken word-video project in collaboration with local poets including myself, Rob Malo, and Duncan Mercredi.

In the video, you’ll get to see a guest appearance by my pal Rob, and for internet points, my cat Chowder.
