Poetics of Fragility on Sunday 11th November 2018

The Poetics of Fragility is a creative documentary that explores the idea of fragility in human life and nature. It interweaves fragments of individuals’ stories and demonstrates nature’s delicacy to reclaim fragility as intrinsic to existence, not just something to be overcome. Shot in the San Francisco Bay Area and Buenos Aires the film features among others internationally renowned scholar-activist Angela Davis, the acclaimed US playwright Cherrie Moraga and Nora Cortiñas, the inspiring founding member of Madres de Plaza de Mayo Linea Fundadora, Argentina.

The kaleidoscopic film explores the texture, vitality and aesthetics of fragility though poetry, dramatic narration and performance. It is a formally plural work that unfolds through stories that build on each other. The contemplative film (scripted by Mani and shot by Grandi) explores documentary as a sensuous tool for social inquiry with a philosophical impulse.
