Video featuring George Stanley and “After Desire”


After Desire video screenshotGeorge Stan­ley and Mark Mushet have wrapped pro­duc­tion of New Star’s lat­est for­ay into film­mak­ing. The result is a gor­geous and enter­tain­ing 6 minute clip about Stanley’s recent book, After Desire. It fea­tures a “video poem” about Vancouver’s 2011 Stan­ley Cup shenani­gans (“Why do they riot”), an inter­view with Stan­ley, Col­in Browne’s thoughts on Stan­ley and After Desire, and beau­ti­ful shots of Stanley’s Kit­si­lano stomp­ing grounds. How many bus­es can you spot?

And giv­en the ubiq­ui­ty of those bus­es in Stanley’s work, it’s only fit­ting that a poem from After Desire, “I’m wait­ing to write,” will be grac­ing BC bus­es as part of the ABPBC’s 2013 Poet­ry in Tran­sit pro­gram.
