Vibrations Documentary Film Screening

Vibrations - Kuwait to Jamaica: A screening of Zahed Sultan’s documentary ‘Vibrations’ along with a panel talk and short performance. The film traces the steps of Zahed Sultan, Kuwaiti multimedia artist and social entrepreneur, whose grassroots approach to work in social causes and music are the inspiration for a recording project that takes him to uncharted territory - Jamaica. The film reveals Sultan's approach to re-imagining the folk music traditions of Kuwait and his journey to discover the roots of Jamaica's musical and societal heritage – with a cast of characters he meets along the way who help him realise the unlikely bridges that exist between two seemingly disparate cultures – ties that remind us of our shared struggles as people and our ability to empower ourselves in a rapidly changing world. After the screening Zahed will then host a panel talk in more detail about the film and the cultural themes and societal issues raised. Taking place 3 May, 2018 at Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA.
