Deep Ocean

Deep Ocean is part of my first video series of poems, which started the entire collaboration, and it began during the pandemic. It is in Portuguese with English subtitles, and has the voice of a Brazilian actor Vanise Carneiro, also directed by Cristiane Oliveira, with watercolor drawings by my cousin, also from Brazil, Priscilla de Paula. This is a unique series since all the participants are women. This poem speaks about aspects of the feminine in me but also in others, and the world.

Her education includes a film degree from Vancouver Film School, a BFA in Creative Writing, an MFA in Creative Writing and a PhD in Comparative Literature, all from the University of British Columbia. Writing, for her, is a hopeless attempt to capture light, in a constant desire for sunshine.
