Accompanied by a 15-minute video-poem on DVD.
Blood is Blood is a powerful encounter between two poets, from diametrically opposed backgrounds, whose cultural and personal lives intersect, clash and confront the truths and fictions that have become the destructive reality of Jews and Arabs trying to co-exist. Although set in the troubled Middle East, its narrative speaks to tribal wars that have wreaked havoc around the globe: in Ireland, in the former Yugoslavia, in Russia, in Zimbabwe, and elsewhere. Endre Farkas, the child of Jewish Holocaust survivors, and Carolyn Marie Souaid, of Lebanese Christian descent, give this piece a special resonance.
