ARTIST STATEMENT 

Having grown up by the ocean in a Latin family both the role of our natural environment and feminine traditions have been constant threads in my work.  Using mixed media video installation and film as metaphoric realities, I engage the viewer by deconstructing familiar human conditions that cause him/her to rethink their perception of that reality.   Whether through our relationship to nature or the female dilemma, my work is a multi-layering of visual and audio elements that take a closer look at our social environment.

BIOGRAPHY

Raised by Cuban and Argentinean parents, Rhonda Mitrani left Miami for University of Michigan and landed a job in post production for Miramax Films, New York.  She started editing for independent film and television, and her work was seen in festivals like LAIFF and aired on Showtime and HBO Latino.  She directed her first documentary, CUBA MIA, which premiered with Miami International Film Festival and broadcast on PBS. 

Mitrani is also a video artist, whose exhibits include Dot Fifty One Gallery,  Wynwood Art Fair, The Girl’s Club Collection, TRIAD, London and a solo show at the Boca Museum of Art with her collaborative RPM Project. 

In 2013 Mitrani opened The Screening Room, a new-media exhibition and project space in Miami. The multi-disciplinary space is dedicated to motion picture which includes video art exhibitions, film workshops and lectures, screenings and a space for filmmakers and video artists to work. TSR Miami is the recipient of the Knight Foundation Arts Challenge grant.

Mitrani wrote, coproduced and directed her first fiction film, SuperMarket, a short inspired by her experiences with pregnancy. The film is executive produced by Killer Impact, a division of Killer Content. She is currently writing a feature.
