Dear PEN members,

We’d like to bring to your attention a review of the film ‘Utopia’ written by one of our own members, Kieran Finnane. As you’ll see the views presented by Kieran provide a marked contrast to the review included in my recent email to you all published by Aljazeera.

Best wishes,

Josephine Scicluna for PEN Melbourne

People say that (writers) are pretty powerless: we don’t have an army, we don’t have a bureaucracy. But if that were true, then why would writers be arrested?... Because the spoken word is powerful.
