Syrian Poet Golan Haji Podcast28th December 2014
Reel Festivals 2011 was our most ambitious event yet, and aimed to host events in Syria, Lebanon and Scotland, focusing on cultural exchange and interaction. Unfortunately due to developing events in Syria we have had to postpone events there.
Instead we had a focused programme of events in Lebanon and Scotland, both of which featured Syrian elements alongside Scottish and Lebanese films, music and poetry. Golan Haji was one of 8 poets taking part in poetry translation working and reading in Lebanon and Scotland including Emily Ballou, Tom Pow, Rasha Omran, William Letford, Mazen Marouf, Yehia Jaber and Ryan Van Winkle.
Syrian poet Golan Haji joins Reel Festivals poetry coordinator Ryan Van Winkle in Beirut as part of the cultural collaboration festival of poetry, film and music Reel Festivals.
Presented by Ryan Van Winkle. Produced by Colin Fraser. Music by Ewen Maclean. mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Twitter: @anonpoetry and @reelfestivals
