Shirley Bruno's films and video works draw from her Haitian heritage preserving and radicalizing her ancestral traditions and mythology. She creates modern myths that expose the slippery, impermanent line between the material and spiritual world, between documentary and fiction, collective memory and history. She investigates the everyday, the Sacred, and the intimate violence in the things left unsaid and mark us generation after generation. Her films often take their point of departure from neglected histories as well as from rumors, dreams, superstitious beliefs, memories both real and imagined.

Shirley Bruno is a filmmaker and artist, graduate of London Film School and Le Fresnoy - Studio National des Arts Contemporains, her works at the border of cinema, animation, installation, and sound has been presented at major contemporary art events and film festivals including Rencontres International Paris / Berlin, Palais de Tokyo, Villa Medici, Montreal intercultural arts, European House of Photography (Paris), FRAC Dunkerque, Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Her films are part of the permanent collection of Centre National des Arts Plastiques (CNAP / France), Vidéographe (Montreal) and Leal Rios Foundation (Lisbon).
