Director Screens “Poetry of Resilience” 3/23

23 March 2010

Poetry of Resilience is a feature-length documentary by Academy Award® nominated director Katja Esson about survivors who endured war, genocide and political persecution and turned to poetry to help them survive. From Rwanda, Japan, China, Iran, Poland and Iraqi Kurdistan and into exile in the United States, Canada and Great Britain, the film follows six stories of survival, six poets and one shared question: How strong is the human spirit? (from the film’s website, http://www.poetryofresilience.com)

Director Katja Esson will screen her film and discuss it on Tuesday evening (3/23) starting at 7:30 PM in the Campus Center Auditorium at SUNY Oswego.
