Join us for a film screening of Muktir Gaan [Bengali: মুক্তির গানThe Song of Freedom] (1995) directed by Tareque Masud and Catherine Masud. This is a documentary film which explores the impact of cultural identity on the Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971, where music and song provided a source of inspiration to the freedom fighters and a spiritual bond for the whole emerging nation.

This event is part of the department of Unruly histories exhibition public programme produced by Meera Shakti Osborne.

Lamya Sadiq loves love - she hopes that everything she creates will enable herself and those around her to feel their relation to one another more deeply. Lamya Sadiq's audio contribution Dangerous Letters is currently installed at the Barbican Library and available to listen to as one of the ten DUH exhibition satellite sites. 

Meera Shakti Osborne is a resident artist at Arts and Media School Islington, where Cubitt has managed four artists studios since 2018 and which is a key site for Reclaim Islington. Reclaim Islington is a two-year programme which supports Islington communities with lived experience of exclusion to collectively explore their narratives, stories and shared histories. Reclaim Islington is generously supported by Freelands Foundation’s Space to Dream and Art Fund’s Reimagine funds.
