From 23rd to 27th June, Taobuk Festival will investigate the change that revolutions generate within each of us: the small and individual ones in our daily lives as the epochal and collective ones that remain in the history books. These are revolutions that spring from a relentless need to go beyond, to write again one’s own destiny.
Elizabeth will give a talk titled "I betrayed my mother: My personal revolution."
