The Haus für Poesie presents a selection of the most exciting entries of the ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival 2020 and 2021. The films deal with the topics of human rights, equality and resistance. They describe how a nation is on its way to reclaiming public space and likewise its rights, or they focus on the taboo subject of homeless youth. Filmmakers angrily report on the never-ending effects of racism, social injustice and disastrous capitalism. It will be an emotionally charged evening of powerful spoken word and moving poetry.
Poems from the poetry films in the programme are by Ghayath Almadhoun, Ahmed Abdul Raqeeb Alkhulaidi, Denice Frohman, Cindy Hunter Morgan, Hind Shoufani, Stephen James Smith and Avery R. Young, among others.
Moderation Alexander Gumz Poet and Artistic Director of the ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival (Poetry), Berlin | Thomas Zandegiacomo Del Bel Artistic Director of the ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival (Film)
