Two Canadian spoken word performers explore issues around media, race and politics.

Synopsis

Commissioned by PEN Canada in 2008, Sedition is a 16-minute documentary by Min Sook Lee that explores issues around media and bias, and sensitive issues in the classroom. Sedition profiles two young spoken-word artists who grapple with issues of racism and censorship, and offer their thoughts on the power of poetry to effect social change. The featured artists, Boonaa Mohammed and Rafeef Ziadah, perform their poetry, tell their stories, and artfully challenge viewers' thinking about education, bias and freedom of expression. Schools and communities that book performances as part of The TAXI Project's spring 2009 tour received a copy of Sedition for viewing.
