“My film making process is usually quite tactile. Much drawing and doodling and gluing and thinking through form making. Sometimes its (sic) just about getting in touch with the intuitive way of communicating.”
Describing herself as a designer, filmmaker, and food enthusiast, Shereen Abdul-Baki is an American experimental filmmaker who lives and works in the Netherlands. Her work centers on integrating media and narrative cinema.
Elegy (2008), her animated short, plays with color, line, motion, and shape. It was nominated for the Best Experimental Animation Award at the California International Animation Festival in 2008 and in 2008 won the Golden Buffalo Award in the ‘Animation Only’ category at the CamboFest Film and Video Festival in Cambodia.
An earlier work of Abdul Baki’s The Kitchen Conqueror (2003) is about Reem who, as she walks through a grocery store daydreams about her family, her history, love and marriage. The Kitchen Conquerer won the Festival Director’s Choice Award at the DC Shorts Film Festival in 2004 and is featured in DV Filmmaking: From Start to Finish by Ian David Aronson.
