“I want to lead with intimacy. I want to lead with connection. I actually don’t have much to say to anyone. Or, I have a million things to say to anyone who will listen. I rather not have to say them, I rather you read my mind. And if we can’t do that, I rather show you how I feel.” – Isa Benn
Twenty-six year old award winning Screenwriter, Playwright, Filmmaker and Multimedia Visual Artist Isa Benn is currently based out of Toronto, Canada. She is a first generation, Toronto native of African-Canadian and Caribbean-Canadian descent. With several highly visual-sensory ‘handicaps’, including synesthesia and or ideasthesia, she has parlayed these long-time impediments into an extraordinary understanding of visceral-visual language and expression. Her stylistically introspective work deals predominantly with experiential culturalism, colour, class, sexuality, gender, and magical realism.
