An afternoon of film screenings and live poetry in tribute to Benjamin Zephaniah

Late last year, we lost the brilliant British poet Benjamin Zephaniah – this summer, Nottingham Poetry Festival is paying tribute to him, with a series of films by local filmmaker Ben Wigley featuring poetry by Benjamin Zephaniah, including documentary feature Paa Joe & the Lion (72m), alongside short films PS Your Mystery Sender (10m) and In this World (4m).

Local poets Chris Oliver, Hilário Alves, Cae Capurro and Frances Wilson-Morkeh will also pay tribute to Zephaniah, and the films will be followed by a Q&A with director Ben Wigley and producer Anna Griffin, about their experience collaborating with the poet.

Proceeds from ticket sales from this event will go towards supporting the brainstrust charity.
