Poem by: Michael V. Smith
Film by: Juli Saragosa

The writer Michael V. Smith asked several filmmakers to visually interpret a poem from his latest book “Bad Ideas.” Juli Saragosa combines a textured sound design and hand-processed Super8mm footage of abandoned places with Google Street View and rotoscoped imagery of talking ravens in this rendering of a poem about the feelings of shame and inadequacy as a settler on colonized land.
