A Mum’s film made entirely at home!
Sahar at 3, just returned from playschool, picks up the book Mum has left lying on the coffee table and starts to read out a story.
The book happens to be bell hooks’ Yearning: Race, Gender, and Cultural Politics.
This is what English, the language she hears around her but does not speak yet, sounds like to her.
She reads out from the book and then helpfully translates what she has read. A story about a ‘crock-roach’, a rabbit that got stuck and had to crawl through a pipe, and some strange knocking sounds.
