    Reminders on the Path

    Reminders on the Path

    Poet and educator from Toronto, Kenya, Kutch and Gujrat, Sheniz Janmohamed talks about how we receive reminders as travelers on the path of life and how these reminders - whether we perceive them as beautiful or ugly - can bring us wholeness. We talk about her most recent collection of poetry, published by Mawenzi House: Reminders on the Path (2021).

    “What do I need to hold onto and what’s holding me down? What are the inheritances that I need to release, that are no longer serving me as I move forward my own path? And also, with that, there’s this disorientation because once you’ve released those habits, ideas, beliefs, ways of seeing the world, you suddenly have to find your own orientation, so you can get lost, you can veer off a path [but] you can come back to a path, you have to remake a path.” - Sheniz Janmohamed

    Letters to Gil

    Letters to Gil

    Author, performance poet and filmmaker from Liverpool, Malik Al Nasir, talks about the ways in which we can liberate our minds from society's conditioning, and by corollary, liberate ourselves. He speaks about his book, Letters to Gil, a memoir of his years of abuse in state care and how mentoring by poet, musician, and social justice activist, Gil Scott-Heron, changed his life.

    “In Britain we were being bludgeoned into believing that we had no right to be anything other than what they told us to be and sought to make that a self-fulling prophecy. It’s only when you have insight that you can understand the structures of society and how they’re being deployed upon you that you recognize how it manifests itself within you, and you have to do what the Last Poets use to call – dewestoxification. It’s about unpicking everything they’ve implanted in you because if you don’t think freely and independently, then you become a surrogate for their ideas." - Malik Al Nasir

    East of the Mountains

    Award-winning producer Jane Charles talks about aging, dying, and finding new life in her 2021 film East of the Mountains (based on the novel by David Guterson, author of Snow Falling on Cedars). East of the Mountains is the story of Dr. Ben Givens, a retired heart surgeon and recent widower who learns he has terminal cancer, and his journey back to the beauty and connection of life. “I always believe when you’re telling a story, you end up living the journey of that film…You live the journey and when you finish the film, it’s like giving birth to all those stories and emotions that you went through but we’re changed by the art and the stories that we tell.”
