Biography

Film- and video maker. Born in Trinidad and Tobago, Ottawa-bred, Concordia-trained Bruno’s short experimental works of the 1990s explored the interface of black and queer experience, desire and representation. Media Blackmale(1994, 5), a frequent queer festival programmer, responds to Mapplethorpe in its confrontation with images of black masculinity and bodies. I and I Outlook (1994, 8) pursued these themes on a more personal tack, a poetic coming-of-age narrative about a boy’s relationship with his father.
