Personnel

What I discovered in film was community. I discovered my world in film. – Derek Jarman

 

Zimbo Films is the product of collaboration between a core of professional artists and a rotating roster of actors, writers, directors, producers, cinematographers and musicians.  Everyone involved in Zimbo Films brings a unique voice and perspective to any given project.  Below is a simple introduction to the core team of Zimbo Films today.

Hank Curry

Robert Curry

Robert CurryRobert Curry is one of the original founding members of Zimbo Films, handling the management of film production and web-based media since 2012.  Between late 2011 and 2013, Curry was the acting program manager at the Cinémathèque Internationale of Philadelphia where he also contributed essays to their blog. In 2015, Curry completed an artist’s residency at GCIT, as well as contributed a number of projections to the interdisciplinary show Plant Me Here.  He has completed more than twenty short films in addition to mounting multi-media installations with the artist collective known as Third Sunday Films. He currently teaches pre-college and continuing studies courses on film directing and film analysis at the University Of The Arts.

Stephen Mercy

IMG_0079 copyHailing from Berks County Pennsylvania, Stephen Mercy is a composer and musician based in Philadelphia.  His work ranges from the traditionally melodic to the avant-garde.  In addition to fronting the band Hidden Lights and working as a recording producer, Mercy has found time to complete a number of soundtracks for Zimbo Films. Mercy’s other interests include video, poetry, and a rabid penchant for synthesizers.  What is, perhaps, Mercy’s most overriding trait is his preoccupation with the “screaming metaphysical blues” and the great existential problems that society presents the individual.
