About | Ania Freer
Ania Freer is a documentary filmmaker and curator based in Kingston, Jamaica. Her filmmaking practice centres on uplifting underrepresented voices within grassroots communities. She is the founder of Goat Curry Gallery and the filmmaker behind the documentary series REAL TALK.
Ania has been working as an artist in Jamaica, using film, photography and writing to document stories and voices from remote communities across the island. Her work shines a light on everyday stories, oral histories and folklore told by community members; stories that often go unseen and unheard.
Ania’s work goes beyond documenting these stories. In 2019 she curated her first group exhibition entitled ‘All That Don’t Leave’ to mark the end of a six-month curatorial fellowship through New Local Space Kingston. The show focused on unique craft practices and oral histories from seven artists working across Jamaica outside of mainstream knowledge. As a curator, Ania aims to give space to makers who have historically been marginalised from gallery spaces.
