Uprooted at LYRA the new Bristol Poetry Festival


LYRA, Bristol Poetry Festival

The main auditorium, Arnolfini Art Gallery, Bristol

Saturday 13th April, 7 p.m.

Rescheduled due to technical issues, the good news is that we are now screening in the evening on Saturday 13th April in the main auditorium. So come along!

Spoken word poet and LYRA Poetry Festival co-director Lucy English, and poetry filmmaker Sarah Tremlett, co-directors of Liberated Words CIC Poetry Film festival and workshops will be presenting Uprooted – a touring screening of short films by international poetry filmmakers on the refugee crisis and migration. Our aim is to show how artists can provide a different, more empathetic view than is portrayed in the media. We have films from artists such as: Ghayath Almadhoun and Marie Silkeberg, Jan Baeke, Alfred Marseille, Maciej Piatek and poet Hollie McNish, as well as our own work, so please drop by, all welcome.

Previous screenings: North Cornwall Book Festival; Bath Spa Empathy Conference, 2018.: ‘Thought provoking and so many different types of film’; ‘Really revealing’; ‘We really support what you are doing’; ‘Powerful – and giving artists a voice’ ‘How do you make poetry films?’ The films generate a big response; the audience all cheered at Holly McNish’s film: Mathematics. www.liberatedwords.com
