Today was the first day on set, filming our new documentary, Moving Voice.

With 2Ro Media and Janet Rogers….

Synopsis

Inspired by a vivid dream and longing to hear the voice of Pauline Johnson, this creative documentary brings us along the rails where the poet spent most of her adult life and career travelling to remote areas to perform, while she gathered experiences and cultivated relationships with Indigenous lands and people found in her poetry. Emphasis will be placed on telling this story through voice, poetry and sonic narratives along the early railway. We will explore the interplay between concepts of (train)tracks and recorded tracks as well as parrellels between waking dreams and dreamtime. Through this grant we will employ up to 4 actors, use period dress, cover travel fees and enlist video and sound editing. A larger feature project of the same theme will follow.
