As it is our mission to champion the advancement and appreciation of literature in all its forms, The Center @ MDC is thrilled to sponsor the Miami International Film Festival screenings of these two films which cast a spotlight on the work of seven unique and compelling poets.


Three-time felon, one-time Tony Award winner, Lemon Andersen is an acclaimed poet who broke out on Broadway in Russell Simmons’ Def Poetry Jam. But Lemon has landed back in the projects, living with thirteen family members and desperate for a way out. He turns to the only things he has left, his pen and his story. This beautifully crafted film follows his efforts to stage a comeback at New York’s Public Theater as he battles demons from his past.

While crossing paths with Spike Lee and other tastemakers, Lemon’s life personalizes the anguish of men clinging to the margins of society but fighting for something more. The film features music by hip-hop phenoms Kanye West, Mos Def, Talib Kweli and Aloe Blacc. The beats of music and rhyme give the film an energy that will stay with you for a long time to come. – Thom Powers

LEMON will read from his book County of Kings followed by a book signing:

Film schedule:

Academy Award®-nominated director and University of Miami alumni Katja Esson (“Ferry Tales”) delivers again with this striking film about survival, strength and the power of the human heart, body and soul – as expressed through poetry. In Poetry of Resilience, she documents 6 different stories through the experiences of six different poets who endured the cruelties of the Holocaust, the horrific effects of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima, China’s Cultural Revolution, the Kurdish Genocide in Iraq, the brutality of the Rwandan Genocide and the Iranian Revolution

Film schedule: 

Saturday, March 10th, 3:30 p.m. (Regal South Beach Cinemas)

The poets write about reconciliation, hate or redemption, but their poetry represents the hardships of living; these artists exemplify how survival can swiftly become the most basic aptitude of the human condition. – Jaie Laplante, Andres Castillo
