Hope is an artist-filmmaker and researcher from Manchester, UK with British-Jamaican heritage. Her work sits at the intersection of experimental film and documentary practices, moving across archival, analogue and digital formats in order to quietly sit across from and outside of time. Her practice wrestles with violence and attempts to ask how we might live in a world and relate to one another with care whilst amongst and against systems of power and control. Central to Hope’s work is a consideration of how working with Black moving images can participate in the re/arrangement of how Black lives come to socially and culturally matter.

Hope is currently working on two films that navigate grief, diasporic memory and resource extraction between Jamaica and the North of England.

Hope’s work has screened internationally at film festivals including the 59th New York Film Festival, BFI London Film Festival, Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, Scotland and Exis Experimental Film Festival, Seoul.  She was awarded the 2023 Aesthetica Emerging Art Prize.
