Kifah Abdulla | Artist and writer

Artist and writer Kifah Abdulla moved the crowd to its feet during his September Maine Live talk. Abdulla recounts the story of his more than eight years as a prisoner of war in Iran. He describes the heat, the hunger, the torture, and his harrowing journey to Portland, Maine. “They captured my body, but not my mind and my heart. And to this day, the one thing that belongs entirely to me is my mind.”
