Listening Tree by Darren Johnson


Minneapolis, MN, USA

A tree on the banks of the Mississippi: What stories does it hold? Multiple branches embedded in our environment, Listening Tree affirms our relationality with life-forces of our world.

A multi-disciplinary artist working primarily in film and poetry, Darren Johnson illuminates cinematic journeys spanning subjects from implicit bias and social justice to music and performing arts. Most recently, his films have screened at the Harlem Film Festival, Lincoln Center’s Dance on Camera Festival, and In/Motion, Chicago’s International Dance Film Festival. His spoken word poetry releases include an audiobook, Conundrums of Indignant Bliss and a live jazz album Poetic Explorations with the Whitewashed Conundrums.
