Based on the poem January by Sadiqa Khan, this vignette is in the film Who is Bruce Kaufman?. This film documents a thriving community of poets and its local organizer and advocate for spoken word, Bruce Kaufman. This five minute vignette features audio responsive visuals of a limestone wall transforming into a series of images. The poem was read by Sadiqa herself and recorded by Matt Rogalsky. The music featured various winter field recordings as well as sounds from the 88 Years Tone Generator. It was produced for Skeleton Park Arts Festival as part of the Kingston Canadian Film Festival. The film will be on tour throughout 2019, which is another way to say you'll have to catch the film before you see anything here.
