Director Statement

I began to learn about video making at the Antigonish County Adult Leaning Centre ( ACALA) in 2013 by creating a digital story about my personal experience with a bout of psychosis. Since that time I have wanted to make videos of my poems. Missing Women in one of my most important poems to date, and through this video of the same name I hope to be able to share it with a wider audience than I might find in print.
