About

This is Not a Poem is a hymn on tolerance. Following the poetry of writer, actor, and human rights activist Eric Ngalle Charles.

This short film is a visual composition which explores education, migration, displacement and belonging. Eric brings his experience and storytelling ability to question home, placing his work and ideas between Wales and Cameroon.

Eric Ngalle Charles is a Cameroonian born and Wales based writer, poet, playwright, actor, and human rights activists. His work has been described by Mr Owen Sheers as ‘’A unique theatrical language’’. Until Corona virus put a stop to it, the film was due to tour the UK as a one-hour package, with discussions on ‘What is home?’ belonging, displacement etc. 

The film is directed by Bafta Cymru and New York film festival award winning film maker Mr Greg Lewis. The film is only 17 minutes but it packs punches.

The premiere screening will be followed by a Q&A with ArtReach’s Film Programmer Reba Martin and writer Eric Ngalle Charles. Join us for this on 14th October at 7:30pm to pick up some of the discussion that would have featured in Eric’s UK tour.
