A turn of breath – Poetry reading by Ashley Tellis, June 26th 2022, Sunday 7 pm onwards + Film Screening and Q&A

We invite you to a book launch and discussion of Ashley Tellis’ first book of poems ‘A Turn of Breath’ (2021) 10 Days from now, on Sunday, June 26th, 2022, 7-8 pm at @theflyinggoat.goa with @lostthepl0t

In this event, Ashley Tellis will read the poems from his book that involve an examination of the law and both its melancholic constitution and the melancholia of the responses to law’s refusal to acknowledge its repeated failure to offer reparation for hurt and violence and murder; its attempts at it, its failures at it. Through various poems in the book about politico-legal events and figures, Tellis will ask questions about melancholia and the law.

We will be ending the program with two films @breadandbelonging and ‘The Golden Fish’, and a Q&A session with the directors.

See you there. RSVP @theflyinggoat.goa | @lostthepl0t | @thus.critique
