just changed the title of my thesis film…again.
A Mind of Winter
Last week, I completed filming for video poem/essay that I have been working on with poet, Katie Rensch. She is a creative writing graduate student at the University of Minnesota.
Overall, the video explores the monotony of winter as well as the way it lingers like a stranger. In the end though winter becomes a hope for renewal.
We will be working on audio over the next couple weeks and should be ready mid-April to show.

The woman writer - and we shall see women doing this over and over again - searches for a female model not because she wants dutifully to comply with male definitions of her “femininity” but because she must legitimize her own rebellious endeavors.
