Nailing Remembrance

Poetry film by Jutta Pryor of Farkhonda Akbar's poem 'Nailing Remembrance', originally commissioned as a sound poem by Multicultural Arts Victoria.

In 2014 Multicultural Arts Victoria commissioned poet Farkhonda Akbar Tufaan and myself for a spoken word sound piece for the Visible album series. Featuring Vinod Prasanna on flute and Aryan Aman Kalyan on tabla. The piece was performed at the Melbourne Festival that year.

Filmmaker Jutta Pryor has 'completed' this work in 2018 by making it into a film, in a serendipitous collaboration between three artists, working together to reveal and conceal the meaning behind this powerful poem.
