On March 12th for this month’s Dinner and a Doc we will be screening three short films by Michael Ondaatje: The Clinton Special follows the production of The Farm Show, a grassroots experimental play developed in a rural Ontario community by Paul Thompson and Theatre Passe Muraille; Sons of Captain Poetry investigates the life and work of Canadian poet bpNichol; and Carry on Crime and Punishment is a docu-drama that follows two Canadian poets as they kidnap a dog.
