Born in New York, Shirley Bruno is an American-Haitian filmmaker. She started out as a documentary filmmaker and multidisciplinary artist before enrolling at the London Film School (United Kingdom), where she obtained a Master’s degree with distinction. Her approach is inward-looking, philosophical, transcendent and largely inspired by the heritage and folklore traditions of Haiti. Her films generally deal with the space between myth and history, corporality and spirit, and are influenced by Caribbean animist philosophy.
