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?
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.
Zoë Keating is a one-woman orchestra! She uses a cello and a foot-controlled laptop to record layer upon layer of cello. Zoë has performed and recorded with a wide range of artists, including Imogen Heap, Amanda Palmer, Tears for Fears and DJ Shadow.
Partus Films is an arts heavy production company located in Ottawa Canada. Its mandate is cross disciplinary visual collaboration for those wanting a unique video presence on the web. Past cinepoetry includes: "Poetry in Motion", by Brandon Wint and "Kay", by the internationally renowned poet Ian Keteku.
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!
