Too Like the Lightning

  • People's Liberty 1805 Elm Street Cincinnati, OH (map)

The new arts organization Walterhoope will premier five short films based on Too Like the Lightning, my series of comedic love poems to catcallers, street harassers, online creepers, followers-on-the-street, and other sundry unsavories. All the poems are true, taken from my own experiences or stories women have shared with me. Walterhoope's cinematic take on these prose poems responds to the #metoo movement and seeks to pull back the curtain on everyday violence against women with both humor and pathos. The series of films will screen at a live community event in Cincinnati on March 26th, with a Washington, DC screening to follow.
