ELIZABETH BISHOP AND THE ART OF LOSING

SUMMARY

PART OF THE 2022 FINGER LAKES ENVIRONMENTAL FILM FESTIVAL
Saturday, April 9 at 8 pm

So often throughout her life, Pulitzer Prize winning poet Elizabeth Bishop’s trajectory is tragically disrupted by a profound personal loss that pushes her into her worst self-destructive habits. Yet, in her sixties, while grief-stricken, she courageously faces up to her most tragic heartbreak, writes her greatest work, becomes her truest self, and learns to master the art of losing. In doing so, she becomes one of America’s greatest poets of the twentieth century.

DIRECTOR/WRITER: John D. Scott
