Amir Husak
Workshop Instructor

Amir Husak is a filmmaker and multimedia artist based in Brooklyn, NY. He moved around (a lot) before taking up residence in New York in 2006. The cross-cultural experiences triggered his interest in media making as means of overcoming communication barriers and other borders, real or imagined. He is particularly interested in digital media representations of history and their impact on identity politics.

Husak has worked across a variety of time-based and interactive media, and also recorded and performed as a musician. His works have been shown at such diverse places as South by Southwest (US), Stadtmuseum Graz (Austria), Sundance Film Festival (US), Sarajevo Film Festival (Bosnia & Herzegovina), P.O.V./PBS (US), Big Sky Documentary Film Festival (US), TV Cultura (Brazil), and Full Frame Film Festival (US).

Husak teaches as part-time faculty in the Media Studies & Film department at The New School in New York. He currently focuses on producing interactive works that combine documentary, essay and experimental techniques.
