Jian Hennings

A writer/director from Trinidad and Tobago, Jian Hennings first explored his interest in the divergent cultural identities that make up his country within his feature-length student film Back to Free-port (2017). He continued this exploration of personal connection within significantly different cultural backgrounds in the romantic story of Grace & Saleem (2020). Jian hopes to further his understanding of his beautifully complicated country, and many stories that can only be told through the art of filmmaking.
