Brett Kashmere

Brett Kashmere is a Canadian-born, Pittsburgh-based filmmaker, curator, and writer. Combining traditional research methods with materialist aesthetics and hybrid forms, Kashmere's experimental documentaries explore the intersection of history and (counter-) memory, popular culture, geographies of identity, and the politics of representation. His 2006 video essay, Valery's Ankle, which examined the spectacle of hockey violence in North American media, has screened internationally at festivals, microcinemas, cinematheques, and galleries, and was named one of the top ten "Underseen, Underdiscussed" films of the decade in Cinema Scope magazine. From Deep continues his foray into the skein of sports, identity, nationality, and fandom.
