Louis Henderson is a filmmaker whose works investigate the networked links between colonialism, technology, capitalism and history. His research seeks to formulate an archaeological method within film practice, reflecting on new materialities of the Internet and the possibility for techno-animistic resistance to neocolonialism.
In 2015 he was the recipient of the Barbara Aronofsky Latham Award for Emerging Video Artist at the 53rd Ann Arbor Film Festival, USA, and a European Short Film Award – T-Mobile New Horizons International Film Festival, Wroclaw, Poland. Recent exhibitions include Projections: New York Film Festival (2015); The School of Kyiv: Kiev Biennial (2015); Conversations at the Edge 2015: Gene Siskel Film Centre, Chicago; Capture All, Transmediale, Berlin (2015). His work is distributed by Video Data Bank.
A graduate of London College of Communication and Le Fresnoy – studio national des arts contemporains, Henderson is currently completing a post-diplôme within an experimental art and research group at the European School of Visual Arts.
