Project Funding

Guyana will be celebrating 50 years of its independence in 2016. Historically, the country has had an enigmatic sense of cultural identity.

The film installation currently entitled I.AM. GUYANA, will showcase and highlight the humanity, spirit, and cultural diversity of the Guyanese people and how they relate to the land they inhabit.

Guyana has always be a country rich in the passing on of traditions, rituals, life lessons and knowledge through storytelling and oral history . Whether it was around a kerosene lamp during a “blackout” or spending time on the seawall on a Sunday, Guyanese people like to express themselves through stories.

Continuing in this tradition of oral storytelling, Award-winning filmmaker, Mason Richards, writer/director of the Guyanese film “The Seawall” will capture living testimonies and personal stories of life in Guyana through a collection of filmed interviews in a mini-documentary style with everyday Guyanese people of various generations and backgrounds.

Richards will create a cinematic film collage with audible stories for a special exhibit to be showcased in 2016.
