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 Kenny Dunkan

Kenny Dunkan’s (Guadeloupe – lives/works in Europe) work is built around video, installation and ritual performances. He uses his recollections of the Guadeloupean Carnival to create his own vocabulary in which one can find a complex Creole identity.

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.
