Che Applewhaite

Che Applewhaite is invested in (un)making the forms of relation, perception and expression that (dis)place shared worlds; through filmmaking, writing and curatorial practices. I hold internationalist and transdisciplinary commitments to politics of time, specificity, and cultural process that elaborate improvisations of life against death.

My first short film, A New England Document, premiered at Sheffield Doc/Fest 2020 won the best emerging artist jury award at Mimesis Documentary Festival at CU Boulder. I have written for publications including Harvard Magazine, Open City Documentary Festival and Millennium Film Journal and worked for artist-filmmakers Christopher Harris and Ja'Tovia Gary; for the Harvard-Mindich Program for Engaged Scholarship and Harvard Art Museums. I received a B.A. in Anthropology and History & Literature from Harvard University.
