MOTHER TONGUES

bts

MOTHER TONGUES is an intergenerational poetry, translation and film project celebrating the work of acclaimed poets of colour alongside the cultures, languages and women who’ve nurtured them. After working with their mothers to translate their work into their mother’s native language, poets and mothers are filmed in intimate conversation before each reciting a version of the poem.

Screened at London Literature Festival 2017
