I till you, my garden. I remove weeds / from you and only hesitate when the birds / share an especially sweet note. I wonder / if the lesser plants clinging to your earth / have a right to it. – Ladan Osman


Where are these stories hidden? In the soil of our history, sitting by the bed waiting for us to steep and take them in, waiting for us to perform them, take our place and establish our being with them. Theatrum Mundi presents a series of artist films and visual essays exploring history, diaspora and ecology.


The Season of Burning Things

Running Time: 00:09:03

Director: Asmaa Jama and Gouled Abdishakour Ahmed

Producer: Sudden Connection, Bristol Old Vic


A profound collaborative moving image piece between these two artists, delving into the creators’ perspectives within the Somali diaspora and engaging with the theme of impermanence. The concept derives from East African mythos and Islamic imagery to explore mythmaking, Blackness, a ‘generation of ghosts’ and the transient spirit. – Girls In Film


The Skin of the Earth

Director: Morgan Senior

Producer: Morgan Senior


A poetic and personal exploration of the human and ecological traumas of British Colonial rule in Barbados, and the lingering connections between the islands.

Director: Ama Josephine Budge

Producer: Centre for Human Rights and The Arts, Bard College


Putting the Cooker on Low explores the daily rituals that allow Black women, femmes, and non-binary folk to keep creating in the midst of spiritual, emotional, familial, societal and ecological crises.
