Taliesin Black-Brown

Taliesin Black-Brown was born underwater in a barn in Vermont to a performance artist and a compost engineer. Nature, freedom and art shaped his early life. Teenage years were marked by a long slow dance with bone cancer, which gifted him with a hard look at suffering and death as much as aliveness and vitality. During chapters of recovery and immobility Black-Brown took to flying drones, a means to re-experience the world in motion. Drone footage became films, films became stories and healing took flight. He is the founder of Olympic Imagery, where 10% of proceeds are donated to pediatric cancer research. As a filmmaker, Taliesin is interested in exploring themes of truth, beauty, vulnerability and power. Black-Brown’s short film debut, Safe Enough, is currently being showcased in festivals such as the Anchorage Film Festival, where it won the Audience Prize. He is the co-director of You Can't Dam Your Way to Paradise (Mountainfilm 2019) and director of I am the nature (Mountainfilm 2024).
