Katja Esson brings us the stories of six international poets who have survived political violence. They tell us and themselves why they write - "to remember, to take revenge, to curse, to forgive, to honor, to commemorate, to transcend."
Li-Young Lee, Lillian Boraks-Nemetz, Majid Naficy, Alexandre Kimenyi, Yashuhiko Shigemoto, and Choman Hardi speak, each one, of their history and their relationship to the creative. The Poetry of Resilience premiers any day now. Here's a trailer.
