In West Virginia (2019)
(poster w/framestill) 

Dave Bonta's Haibun poem about an unexpected car breakdown in a small town, "In West Virginia," the second poem in his recent book, "Failed State," is the inspiration for Jack Cochran and Pamela Falkenberg's film poem, which finds arresting audio and visual correspondences among landscapes taken over by strip malls, strip mines, and strips of highways.

"In West Virginia" is still out on t.he festival circuit, but you can watch the trailer for our film here.
