Description

On Day 2, the Tout-Monde Festival, first Caribbean Contemporary Arts Festival in Miami, will introduce you to Shirley Bruno's work thanks to the projection of "Tezen". The projection will be followed by a Q&A with the Haitian filmmaker through a discussion moderated and curated by Jason Jeffers from Third Horizon.

Program

6PM-7.15PM: Caribbean short-film program curated by Third Horizon - "Tezen" (26min) by Shirley Bruno. Followed by Q&A with Shirley Bruno conducted by Jason Fitzroy Jeffers.

About Tezen (2016)

A restless daughter meets a spirit who gives her pure water. Her family devours the delicious water until they begin to suspect more than the origin of its taste. A traditional folktale retold entirely featuring a cast of nonactors from one family made of three generations.

About Shirley Bruno

Shirley Bruno's (Haiti) films draw from her Haitian heritage preserving and radicalizing her ancestral traditions and mythology. 2016 Laureate of the StudioPrix Collector, she creates modern myths that expose the slippery spaces between the physical and metaphysical world, between collective memory and history. In her work she explores the everyday, the Sacred, and the intimate violence in the things left unsaid that mark us.
