In Flux: Poetry Films
How Does Black Creativity Manifest?
Discover a new series of short films made by Montreal’s emerging Black artists.
In Flux is a series of poetry films by Montreal-based Black creators who aim to define, redefine, and interpret Black creativity in their own ways. Briefed to work within the vertical format of 16:9, the creators embraced this narrow aspect ratio to display wide-ranging expressions of Black creativity—a constant force of reinvention and renewal, encompassing a spectrum of backgrounds, disciplines, stories, and experiences.
PHI piloted the In Flux platform, which offered support, knowledge-sharing, and space to young content creators and filmmakers—to tell their own stories, continue to break down boundaries and challenge institutional frameworks. During the process, they were guided by established practitioners in their respective fields. The mentors included Eva Kabuya, Roen Higgins, Rito Joseph, Miryam Charles, Vladimir Delva, George Fok, Miro LaFlaga, and Ash Phillips.
