Oliver Husain is a filmmaker and artist based in Toronto. His projects often begin with fragments of history, a rumour, a personal encounter or a distant memory. He uses a wide range of cinematic languages and visual pleasures—such as dance, puppetry, costume, and special effects—to animate his research and charm the viewers into complex narrative set-ups. His work has been shown recently in solo exhibitions Republic Gallery (Vancouver) and Gallery TPW. He has participated in numerous international exhibitions and film festivals including the Berlinale Film Festival; Kunstverein Nürnberg (Nürnberg, Germany); and the Art Museum, University of Toronto, among others.
