Trains of Winnipeg: 14 Film Poems (2004, Clive Holden)

The film portion of Clive Holden's poetic and penetrating multimedia project Trains of Winnipeg has been uploaded to The Auteurs website, where for a short time it will be available for free viewing.  Personal, sociological, psychological and geographical concerns are explored through the connective tissue of a railroad excursion, meeting in the middle of both "analogue and digital ages", making for a highly varied viewing experience.

Holden has also made himself available for questions on the forum portion of the website...

(Also very much worth reading is this article by David Foster in Scope Magazine, which extensively explores the use of lyricism in the work)
