OFFICIAL SELECTION TO : Body Electric Film Festival 2013, Resolution 2013

Cinepoetry is the art of combining any flavor of poetry with any flavor of cinema.

HUSNIYAH combines direct cinema; or observational documentary, with spoken word poetry to present one of the greatest dilemmas facing parents and artists alike:

HOW DO WE BEGIN TO LET GO OF OUR GREATEST CREATIONS?

The Poetry

Just Jamaal is a page and stage poet from Ottawa, Canada. His poetry represents a progressive blend of song, acting and dance to deliver a unique poetry experience for all audiences. Jamaal is also the founder of Make Spoken Word Go Viral; a rising hub for all things poetic happening in our great country and a member of Missing Linx; one of Ottawa's premiere hip hop assembles.

We hope you enjoy HUSNIYAH, a film that represents the ongoing union between poet and filmmaker, a partnership that is gaining momentum and giving birth to this new medium we call cinepoetry!
