For Paradise - UK Premiere
Elizabeth Webb - USA, 25 mins.
My great-grandmother was a black woman known for her exquisite beauty, yet there are no recorded images of her. Her name was Paradise. Allowing her story to guide me through complicated family histories of migration and racial passing, I navigate the spaces where power can be found in absence and loss.
Artist and filmmaker living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Her work is invested in issues surrounding race and identity, often using the lens of her own family history of migration and racial passing to explore larger, systemic constructs. She has screened and exhibited in the U.S., Canada, Japan, Ecuador, Mexico, Singapore, Switzerland, Austria and Germany and was a recipient of the inaugural Allan Sekula Social Documentary Award in 2014.
