The Poetics of Fragility, a film by Nicolas Grandi and Lata Mani

The Poetics of Fragility uses story, poetry and performance to explore the question of human existence and its fragility. Is fragility a problem to be surmounted, or should we accept it as fundamental to our world and being? This wonderful film features contributions from many artists, activists, musicians, writers and thinkers including Angela Davis, Cherrie Moraga, Nora Cortiñas, Greg Manalo, Thao P. Nguyen, Martha Rynberg and Jisha Menon. After the film, join us for a discussion with our panellists.
