Event description
Unlike digital communication, handwriting carries something beyond literal meaning, something of the soul

About this Event

Through the eyes of twelve international artists Traces of the Soul explores the world of contemporary calligraphy and why it is an increasingly relevant art form in this digital age. The film reveals how the art, philosophies and life stories of these artists, whose diverse work is rooted in the ancient traditions of calligraphy, reflect and engage with the modern world.

Join us for a screening and presentation by director Martin Cooper and some of the artists featured in the documentary.

The film, was selected for a number of festivals including Washington DC DocFest, Sydney Independent Film Festival and Docs Without Borders. It won First Prize at the ‘Szolnok International Arts Film Festival’ in Hungary and also Best Contemporary Art Documentary and Most Beautiful Film In Festival at the ‘Master of Arts Film Festival’ in Sofia.

This event is part of Converging Paths 2020, organised by Asia House and The Barakat Trust, and with the support of The Altajir Trust. The event has been facilited by Sakiko Nishihara.

This event is part of the series Converging Paths, a year-long series of events curated for 2020, and organised in partnership by Asia House and The Barakat Trust. With this series we aim to engage audiences in challenging cultural misconceptions about the Islamic world, building bridges between communities and highlighting the importance of the arts of that region. We aim to provide wider access, combining digital platforms and curated cultural programmes that appeal to adults and families.
