Welcome to the website of artist and filmmaker Roz Mortimer.
Roz’s work has been widely shown around the world at film festivals, galleries, cinemas, online and on television. She lectures at universities in the UK and USA and her work has been supported by Arts Council England, Wellcome Trust, Rockefeller Foundation, British Council, Film London, LFVDA, LAFVA, Animate, Eastern Arts and Channel 4 Television.
Her work is focused on expanded and experimental forms of documentary across a range of media; from film and video to photography, sound, installation and performance. Earlier works unpicked notions of Englishness and explored human-animal relations, whereas more recent works have focused on specific global locations from the High Arctic to the Italian Lakes and the forests of Poland, creating layered and thought provoking portraits which blur the boundaries between staged theatre and documentary whilst challenging our social and political understanding of the world today.
