MOTHER TONGUESis an intergenerational poetry, translation and film project celebrating the work of contemporary black poets alongside the cultures, languages and women that have nurtured them. After working with their mothers to translate their work into their mother’s native language, poets and mothers are filmed in intimate conversation before each reciting a version of the poem. The four films will debut to an audience at Rivington Place Gallery on the evening of Wednesday 26th July 2017, alongside a chaired discussion. MOTHER TONGUES is produced and directed by Victoria Adukwei Bulley, supported generously by Autograph ABP and Arts Council England.
