FOR THOSE WHO MISPRONOUNCE MY NAME

I was commissioned to create a short film on Kayo Chingonyi's poem 'For Those Who Mispronounce my Name' as a part of the Moving Pictures and Borders Project. The project was done in collaboration with the Bristish council and the Bocas Lit Festival.

SHEENA ROSE

2017

Directed by Maya Cozier
"Sheena Rose" is a visual portrait of a contemporary artist living and working in Barbados. Her work explores daily experiences through a mixture of animations, performances and self made videos on FB and Instagram. After knowing the artist and her work for three years, I spent one week at her family home. Despite her rising popularity on social media and a recent NY Times feature, I encounter a tender and vulnerable moment.
