Waiting for Sun 2019 [running time 3 min 45 sec] is a short film based on the poem of the same name written and directed by Zelene Pineda Suchilt, with cinematography and editing by Kevin Ariota. The film features Brooklyn based DJ Bembona, who is of Afro- Panamanian and Puerto Rican descent, as well as Afro Ecuadorian poet, Maria Fernanda Lara Chamorro. The film is an ode to the Manhattan neighborhood of East Harlem also known as El Barrio; its murals, music and the artists whom it influenced. The poem is a soul journey into the maze of love, identity, and the line that blurs art and madness, while intersecting with the themes of displacement, solidarity and joy as resistance.
