Film and Discussion: Poetry of Resilience

Back to all events

Downtown Campus: High Falls A/B (320A/B)
03:30 pm - 05:00 pm

Academy® Award nominated director Katja Esson's (Ferry Tales, Skydancer) exquisitely made film explores survival, strength and the power of the human heart, body and soul as expressed through poetry. She highlights six different poets who individually survived Hiroshima, the Holocaust, China's Cultural Revolution, the Kurdish Genocide in Iraq, the Rwandan Genocide, and the Iranian Revolution. By summoning the creative voice of poetry to tell stories of survival and witness, each reclaims humanity and dignity in the wake of some of history's most dehumanizing circumstances.

FREE and open to the public.  Discussion and refreshments provided.  Public parking in lot CC.
