Ghazi Hussein at Wordplay 2014

Poet, writer, and Bafta award winning playwright, Ghazi Hussein, talks to Dave Hammond at this year’s Wordplay Festival in Shetland.

Palestinian born Ghazi Hussein was exiled in Syria, and between the ages of 14 and 36, he was imprisoned and tortured in Syria for “carrying thoughts”, for his writing.
