The Year Is 2020 is a new short film project by Bill Irving and James Brown,

based on Brisbane poet Anisa Nandaula’s powerful poem of the same name.

Anisa Nandaula

Anisa is a nationally recognised performance poet. Her work is relentlessly focused on issues of social justice, identity and the consequences of ignoring marginalised voices. Her style is almost musical – with rhythm, rhyme and wordplay as important as the written form of her poems. She kicks arse.
