About the Director(s):

Jian Hennings

Jian Hennings

A writer/director from Trinidad and Tobago, Jian Hennings first explored his interest in the divergent cultural identities that make up his country within his feature-length student film Back to Freeport (2017). He continues this exploration into personal connections via individuals from significantly different cultural backgrounds, now encompassed within the romantic story of Grace & Saleem (2019). Jian hopes to continue his exploration of social/cultural connection within his beautifully distinctive island home of Trinidad and Tobago via continued experimentation and a deep love of film.
