Shirley Bruno’s films draw from her Haitian heritage preserving and radicalizing her ancestral traditions and mythology.
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 every day, the Sacred, and the intimate violence in the things left unsaid that mark us.
Her work has shown in film festivals, galleries, and television worldwide.
Shirley holds a Masters with Distinction from London Film School and a Masters II with Mention from Le Fresnoy – Studio National des Arts Contemporains where she was an artist fellow. She works alternately between France, New York, and Haiti.
