Kamila Kuc

Kamila Kuc's hybrid works explore the transformative potential of apparatuses, dreams and memories in the creation of societal myths and narratives. Of particular interest to her practice are stories that subvert dominant narratives of history, especially those relating to post-Soviet identities. Her first feature film, What We Shared (2021), premiered at the 65th BFI London Film Festival and was described as one of ‘the finest examples of UK filmmaking’ by Festival Scope. She is also the author and editor of numerous books and articles on experimental media, including Visions of Avant-Garde Film (Indiana University Press).
