Space Between Time
Premiere Screening of the Spoken Word Poetry Film by Ghalib
Saturday, 27th October 2018 | 19:00 - 21:00
The event hosts the latest film screening of London poet, Ghalib Lone.
His latest spoken word film, 'Space Between Time' explores one of the complex challenges of modern-day life: seeking to find a place and time for intrinsic goals and passions, within a consumer-driven culture and society.
Ghalib has performed across Dubai, London and most recently toured the United States in September to October. He performed at several renowned New York poetry nights, including Nuyorican Poets Cafe, where he featured in the Friday Night Poetry Slam Final, Bowery Poetry and InspiredWordNYC. He also performed in Washington DC at Busboys and Poets.
He holds a Law degree and Masters in International Law from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, specialising in International Human Rights, where he worked for the United Nations at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.
His work is influenced both by London's diverse landscape, where he was born and brought up, as well as his proud Kashmiri roots, where poetry plays an integral part in society and culture across South Asia. He describes himself as a storyteller through the narrative of poetry, often using his work to highlight wider social issues and taboos, as well as opening up about personal struggles.

The night will be opened by one of London's up-and-coming guitarists, Sam Pascall. Born and brought up in North London, Sam has performed across the city for the past 4 years. For Sam, the guitar is more than just an instrument, representing a language to communicate with people from all walks of life.
