narrative, visual, and sound work by Khaled Hakim
Khaled Hakim has a background in film and linguistically innovative poetry. He took an extended absence from both, becoming a Sufi student and subsequently a Sufi musician. This website marks a return to publishing and presents work from two projects: firstly a late-modernist degraded epic called The Book of Naseeb set to be published by Penned in the Margins in 2020. Secondly a collection of experimental spiritual films called A Book of Commonplaces which continue a dialogue with Brakhagian, Structural, and Materialist filmmaking. In addition, there are excerpts from newly published 'Letters from the Takeaway' (Shearsman June 2019).
