The Line Has Shattered Documentary Screening

The Line Has ShatteredMonday, March 24

The Line Has Shattered (55 min.), is a new documentary exploring the 1963 Vancouver Poetry Conference. The film is directed by Robert McTavish, who will be present for the screening.

Robert McTavish is a Canadian documentary film-maker whose works include Ghosts on the Land (2001), Fiddler’s Map (2003) and What To Make of It All?: The Life and Poetry of John Newlove (2006). He also edited A Long Continual Argument: The Selected Poems of John Newlove (Chaudiere Books, 2007, afterword by Jeff Derksen) which was hailed by the Globe and Mail as “a fitting monument to the poet’s consummate craftsmanship, and a cause for national celebration.”
