The Vancouver International South Asian Film Festival took place in rainy Gastown just last weekend. In its sixth year, this innovative film festival highlights the artistic and creative achievements of the South Asian film community. I was thrilled to attend the VISAFF screening of “Mah e Mir” (ماہ میر), a Pakistani movie tackling the state of contemporary Urdu (اردو) poetry. The film addresses the life and impact of Mir Taqi Mir, an 18th century poet who lived during the Mughal Empire and who would later be called the God of Poetry.

I’m sitting in the back row of the Rio Theatre watching Alexandria Taylor smile graciously through what I assume is an incredible amount of pain.
The medical staff are asking her to return to bed and avoid strenuous activity.
“So I probably shouldn’t be twerking or anything?” she asks.
The doctor laughs nervously.
