Meet the artists behind this acclaimed poetry film project between Scotland and Quebec

Over a series of months in 2016, Scotland-based poets Rachel McCrum and Calum Rodger collaborated with Jonathan Lamy and Genevieve Gosselin-G., poets and filmmakers from Montreal. The results are a series of filmpoems which trace connections between Montreal and Scotland, and explore the ways in which we view cities and place ourselves within them. Join us for a conversation with Calum, Rachel and Jonathan – the latter two by Skype connection – about the transnational project and the resulting filmpoems.

The Quebec-UK Connexions Project is a collaborative project between the Scottish Poetry Library and the Maison De La Poesie in Montreal, and is funded by the Quebec Government and British Council Canada.
