We’re thrilled to welcome back Barbara Hammer—a frequent guest of the Wex and its Film/Video Studio Program—to screen her latest documentary on poet Elizabeth Bishop. Welcome to This House explores the work and loves of this Pulitzer Prize– and National Book Award–winning author with special emphasis on Bishop’s homes in the United States, Canada, and Brazil, all of which had a deep influence on her work. Interviews with friends, scholars, and other writers help complete the picture of her relationships with numerous female lovers. (79 mins., HD video)
