Poetry + Film / Hack (Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit) article image

Watch a screening of this beloved classic film, before joining Inua Ellams as a line-up of poets share new work - their words and verses responding to the themes of this hilarious musical comedy.

The sequel to Sister Act, this cult classic 1992 film co-starring Lauryn Hill, sees Whoopi Goldberg reprising her role as Deloris van Cartier, as she finds herself coming to the aid of her nun friends who need her help to save her old school.

Joining Inua Ellams for this film hack are established poets who tour nationally and internationally, their collective experience ranging from storytelling and theatre to radio and television. Following the screening of the film, the artists are invited to share specially commissioned poetry responding to the film's themes. They include the provocative and passionate voices of Barbican Young Poets alumni.
