Faren Humes is a writer and filmmaker from Miami, Florida. Her work melds documentary and narrative conventions for social realist portrayals of Southern Black communities to explore themes of connectedness, belonging and liminality.  Her films have screened with special recognition at the Berlinale, Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur, SXSW, AFI, New Orleans Film Festival + Miami Film Festival. She has held fellowships from Film Independent, Knight Foundation, Sundance Institute + Tribeca Film Institute, among others. As a form of narrative reclamation, Faren’s work engages duration and repetition for an embodied experience exploring the notion of Black life undisturbed.
