Write Me (2019), a short film by Pearl Gluck, follows an older woman who joins other survivors in reclaiming the histories tattooed on their bodies. In part two of this four part-series, poets Deborah Kahan Kolb (author, After Auschwitz), Cornelius Eady (co-founder, Cave Canem Foundation), and Jennifer Jean (director, Free2Write Poetry Workshops for Trauma Survivors) will lead a workshop on using writing as a source of healing, resistance, and transmitting of personal histories. (Series Part 2 of 4)
The film Write Me focuses on tattoos – an aesthetic choice for some, but a permanent reminder of harrowing past events for survivors of trafficking and the Holocaust. The series hopes to effect positive change by engaging diverse communities in conversations on art, social justice, history, and current events.
