Esery Mondesir is a Toronto-based, Haitian-born video artist and filmmaker. He was a high school teacher and a labour organizer before receiving an MFA in Cinema Production from York University in 2017. Mondesir’s work draws from personal and collective memory, official archives, and vernacular records, to suggest a reading of our society from its margins. His films explore migration and exile as sites of identity formation as well as cultural resistance. Mondesir will discuss Manuel Mathieu’s exhibition World Discovered Under Other Skies.
