*Bengaluru Talkies: Streaming of Artscape- Hala Muhammad: Waiting for
Spring & Al Khadra: Poet of Desert
Poems have sparked revolutions. A lot is said, and lot is unsaid in the
poems, that makes them the most powerful tool of protest.
Nanak protested against the invasion of Hindostan by Babar through poems
which inspired generations of his nation to rebel against tyrannical
forces. In modern times th pen of Agha Shahid Ali has been far more
mightier than the bullets and tanks of Indian forces in Kashmir. To revisit
the strength of poems Paradigm Shift
<https://www.facebook.com/paradigmshiftraaga> will be streaming two
episodes fromAl Jazeera English <https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera>'s
series: Artscape- Poets of the Protest.
Hala Muhammad- Waiting for Spring: In the film renowned and outspoken
Syrian poet Hala Mohammad explains how she thinks poetry is central to the
political change under way in the Middle East.
Al- Khadra- Poet of the desert: Al Khadra is a renowned Sahrawi war poetess
living in the al-Auin camp in the Algerian desert. A vivid testament to 30
years of the Sahara conflict, we see how she keeps her oral poetry alive
and tries to pass on her activism to the next generation.
The screening will be followed by a discussion on role of poems in protest.
You're most welcome to read your poems in the discussion followed by the
streaming. The screening is open and free for all.
