Naima Ramos-Chapman is a Writer, Director, Editor, Dancer, Actor and Cinematographer. The first short film she directed, And Nothing Happened –about the emotional cost and aftermath of sexualized violence–premiered at the 2016 Slamdance Film Festival, and has screened at L.A. Film Festival, BAMcinemafest, Blackstar Film Festival, Rooftop Films, and Urbanworld to name a few. She’s developing her next short film, a stalker-revenge flick that traverses across several planes of existence slated to shoot in the Fall. Her video design work (exploring god dreams on existential nihilism as experienced by black bodies trapped in white universes) in collaboration with renowned choreographer and “2013 MacArthur Genius”” Kyle Abraham, is currently touring and she couldn’t be more happy. You can catch some of her documentary work airing here and there on Brooklyn’s Community Media channel, BRIC. Ramos-Chapman apprenticed at The Barrow Group for Acting, trained for several years on scholarship at the Alvin Ailey School for Dance, and in a former life she was also known for her musings on politics, pop culture, race and intersectionality. Her work appeared digitally at the “Huffington Post”, “The Nation”, “NPR”, “Colorlines”, “Generation Progress”, “Postbourgie”, “Racialicious”, “Saint Heron”, and other web-circulated publications in no particular order.
