Michele Williams Gamaker – Contributor 2016


Michelle Williams Gamaker (London, 1979) is an international moving image artist and researcher. Her works integrate performance through documentary and fiction modes to focus on the experience of individuals who forcibly or voluntarily become exiled or marginalised. Her current projects are The Fruit is There to be Eaten, a post-colonial, post-romantic exploration of British directors Powell & Pressburger’s female protagonists from Black Narcissus (1947) and the docu-fiction Brown Queers, which explores the multiplicities of identity for Queer people of colour. Her feature film,Violet Culbo, in development with Film London (FLAMIN) is a magic realist road movie through Britain. The film reflects on the culture of suspicion around group practice in the wake of extremism, ideas of belonging and migrant experience in the UK.
