Uprooted is a curated poetry film screening by Liberated Words co-directors, poet Lucy English and video-poet Sarah Tremlett, reflecting on the lives of refugees and migration, and how artists can illuminate and fulfill important roles. Three types of film will be shown: those centered on war zones, those in transit and the views from those both welcoming and 'settling' in a new country. The films show how artists can bring another view of the refugee crisis beyond how it is portrayed in the media.

Filmmakers for these short poems include Ghayath Almadhoun and Marie Silkeberg, Jan Baeke, Alfred Marseille, Maciej Piatek and poet Hollie McNish. 

Presented as part of Lyra Bristol Poetry Festival: 

Lyra is Bristol's brand new poetry festival, supported by Arts Council England. We are proud to present a festival programme which captures the variety of modern poetry in terms of its style and presentation.
