A collaboration between Mary McDonald and Fiona Tinwei Lam

A collaborative video poem based on Vancouver Poet Laureate Fiona Tinwei Lam’s poem “Utility Pole”. This poem can be found in Odes & Laments (Caitlin Press, 2019).

“Utility Pole is a poetry film collaboration between poet Fiona Tinwei Lam and poetry filmmaker Mary McDonald. Utility Pole explores the transformation of trees into the poles that hold our communications, the many branched network that connect us, as the trees have been severed from each other and their own living networks.”
