KSA MA film making (2017)
Sarima P. Proveyer is a filmmaker, video editor and writer born in Ciego de Avila, Cuba in 1990. A devoted cinephile from an early age, her endless interest in the communicative impact of moving images lead her to become a filmmaker. Despite her initial vocation as a video editor, Sarima Proveyer felt the need to tell her own stories, a fact that motivated her to undertake a parallel career as a director. Among her most important titles are ‘The Death of the Swan’, ‘The Art of Losing’, ‘Monday Club’ and ‘Sew On, Sew Forth’. In 2013 she graduated in Audiovisual Communication from the University of Arts (ISA) in Havana, Cuba, where she specialised in editing. After finishing her BA studies, she worked as a video editor for the International School of Film and Television in San Antonio de los Banos, Cuba. Under this position, she collaborated with renown directors such as Charles McDougall and Carlos Sorin. During this time she also worked as a editing teacher at ISA. Due to her successful development as a media and film professional, she received a prestigious Chevening Scholarship (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) in 2016, which funded her master’s studies at Kingston University in London. This academic and life experience solidified her artistic voice and confirmed her intentions of working among the frameworks of independent film and video production. Her films have been exhibited in the Latin American Film Festival in The Netherlands, the Young Filmmakers Award (Cuban Film Institute) and in different cinematographic programs on Cuban TV. She continues to work as a freelance filmmaker and video editor.
