Edouard Glissant: One World in Relation (dir: Manthia Diawara) follows the prolific postcolonial poet on his Transatlantic cruise to Martinique. On this journey, the writer discusses metissage, creolization, opacity, and the poetics of relation all framed in his passage through the sea. Join us March 2nd on this meditation on migration and race. More information coming soon.
