Shirley Bruno:

Haitian-American filmmaker and artist Shirley Bruno’s films take their point of departure from neglected histories as well as from rumors, dreams, superstitious beliefs, memories both real and imagined. Preserving and radicalizing ancestral traditions and mythologies, she creates and reimagines modern myths that expose the impermanence between documentary and fiction, collective memory and official histories, the material and spiritual worlds.


Shirley’s work has screened nationally and internationally at major festivals and contemporary art exhibitions. Her films Tezen and An Excavation of Us are included in the permanent collections of Centre National des Arts Plastiques France, Leal Rios Foundation Lisbon, and Vidéographe Montréal. Exhibitions and screenings of her work have presented at Berlinale, Locarno International Film Festival, Hammer Museum, MoMA, Montréal arts interculturels, La Galerie Municipale Vitry de Jean Collet, Villa Médici Rome, Palais de Tokyo, Maison Européenne de la Photographie among others.
