24 minutes · 2019
A film by David Tann
Here Say gathers the country's top artists using speaking as performance for a series of creative roundtables and public performances in Metro Atlanta. From spoken word and storytelling to lectures and rap (and everything in between), Here Say invests in the development and cross pollination of this dynamic and democratic form--word and voice.
2018's Here Say artists are:
Amanda Torres, Ray Christian, Derrick Brown, Dame Wilburn, Anis Mojgani, and Buddy Wakefield.

AIR Serenbe, the nonprofit artist residency program of the Serenbe Institute, invests in artists of all disciplines. We provide the time and space necessary for the creation of new work, as well as focused public programming that brings audiences in close contact with creative processes and practices. Filmer, our new initiative, brings to life the untapped creative energy of emerging and established filmmakers by pairing them with some of the most interesting artists in the country. In this match up, we commission filmmakers to make an original short portrait film that illuminates something of the artist’s person while unpacking their artistic process. We give the filmmakers full creative control over the films, pay them an honorarium, provide them with a residency, and honor them as the artists they are. At the end of the year, we present a premiere of all films to a live audience in a large theater in Atlanta. Filmer launched in 2017 in partnership with Edgar Allan.
