The third short artist documentary I've made for The Davidoff Art Initiative. This time around I decided to shoot the piece myself as well which was quite enjoyable. I shot, directed and edited this one and created some title card designs inspired by some of the modern graphics and colors in her pieces.
Hulda Guzman, Davidoff Art Residency, New York
"Leasho" Short Documentary
Director, Cinematographer, Editor
Short documentary follows Leasho Johnson during his time at Residency Unlimited in Brooklyn part of The Davidoff Art Initiative. davidoffartinitiative.com I loved interviewing him. His work uses a lot of humour, but is quite sexual, and raw as well, very bold. We spoke about what it means to be a man in the Caribbean, the role that a history of colonization still has on our characters, and about DANCEHALL, among other things. It was interesting to see all the similarities between our cultures, he being from Jamaica and me being from another the Dominican Republic.
