Poetics of Fragility film – discussion with Angela Davis, Cherrie Moraga, Lata Mani, Nicolas Grandi

Today on KPFA Radio’s Women’s Magazine we listen to a recent conversation recorded at the Impact Hub Oakland with feminist historian and cultural critic Lata Mani and filmmaker Nicolás Grandi,  who are the co-directors of the inspiring new film “The Poetics of Fragility.” Ashara Ekundayo hosts a conversation with the filmmakers and activist and scholar Angela Davis and acclaimed playwright and author Cherrie Moraga who are featured in this new film. They talk about the importance of reclaiming fragility as intrinsic to existence, their own experiences with aging and illness and the importance of embodied knowledge and a connection to the body for healing, politics and physical, spiritual and intellectual transformation.
