Michael V. Smith, award winning Canadian writer and poet, has a new film out, The Floating Man, which has just won the Director’s Choice award at the Cinema Diverse Film Festival.  

This intimate documentary unpacks Michael V. Smith’s journey as a self-described sissy with a body he found humiliating as he developed his art to become a radical drag performer and genderqueer artist. A unique blend of DIY documentary, road trip, performance art, and videopoem, this amusing self-portrait sources Smith’s provocative art practice to examine a lifetime of untrue stories about his body. One featured project includes Smith on a road trip on British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast, searching for famed Canadian singer Joni Mitchell, while dressed as Peanut the Clown.

Presented as part of Brandon University’s Gender and Women’s Studies speaker series.
