A City is a Poem (2016)

Commissioned for the 2016 Dallas Festival of Ideas, "A City is a Poem" is a collaboration between filmmaker Andrew Holzschuh and poet Joaquin Zihuatanejo.

Four months after getting back from the PCT, after my wife and I decided to plant our roots back in Dallas for a while, I got asked to make a film about the very city I missed. Not for its status or skyline, but for its people and its hospitality. I was given the opportunity to collaborate with award-winning American slam poet Joaquin Zihuatanejo. With his poem in my head, I explored some of the less known about corners of Dallas and met some awesome people along the way.
