CARMEN

14m Fiction 2023

Lazara loses her cool while helping her unstable mother, Carmen, run risky errands. A haunting and inventive portrait of the intergenerational imprints of domestic violence, Cristine Brache’s CARMEN is a uniquely Miami story that balances surrealism, tenderness, bizarreness, and reality to create a poetic cinematic language that inspires lasting reflection.

Cristine Brache (b. 1984, Miami, FL) is an artist, poet, and filmmaker. She received her MFA in Fine Art Media from the Slade School of Fine Art, London (UK). She often takes her personal and family history as a starting point to explore shared histories and trauma, womanhood, and the inevitable power dynamics that accompany these themes. Select solo exhibitions include those held at Anonymous Gallery (New York); Locust Projects (Miami); and Anat Ebgi (Los Angeles) among others. Her work has been critically reviewed in places such as Artforum, The New York Times, The Art Newspaper, The Miami New Times, and The New Yorker.
