Uprooted at REELpoetry Houston
Honoured to be part of REELpoetry, Houston (24–26 Jan) where Dave Bonta of Moving Poems will be featured this year. I will be presenting Uprooted – poetry films relating to migration and the refugee crisis – with Canadian media artist and storyteller Mary McDonald, whose powerful, thought-provoking and arresting film On the Margin of History (2019) with Serbian-born poet Natasha Boskic and Syrian poet Mohamad Kebbewar will be a highlight of this curation for the first time. Mary will also be getting us immersed in augmented reality; also Outspoken Bean and workshop by Toni Holland. Much admiration for Fran Sanders and her hard work and strong vision at Public Poetry – for tickets go to https://www.publicpoetry.net/reelpoetry/ and many thanks to Mary – who I am very pleased and proud to say is now co-managing screenings of Uprooted across the pond.
