Art Over Politics:

The Persistence of Dreams

SALMA
 

How does art survive in a time of oppression? A series of three films, Art Over Politics: The Persistence of Dreams examines the crucial relationship between contemporary art and politics even as it extends the possibilities of the documentary form. The films highlight three particularly excruciating clashes between art and political power from fall around the globe. In each case, it is an individual’s personal vision, persistence and passion that transcend a political or culture’s repressive structures.

In SALMA, beautiful imagery and an evocative score accentuate the unfolding narrative of Muslim Tamil poet Salma, a luminous artist who defied her family to become one of the most important female literary figures in South India today, in this extraordinary new documentary by award-winning filmmaker Kim Longinotto. When Salma reached puberty, her parents literally locked her away from the world at large—and men in particular—a fate shared by millions of young girls all over the world. But Salma refused to let her years of imprisonment quell the voice she secretly nurtured. By Kim Longinotto, UK/India, 2013, 89 min.
