Rashid Zakat (he/his) combines film, music, photography, and creative space-making in work that engages with Black social and spiritual life. His short films, documentaries, and music videos feature original content and archival material, including images of migration, worship, uprising, dance, and popular culture. Embracing collaborative filmmaking practices, Zakat says he is “committed to video as a mode of honoring people and histories and as form of accessing liberation.” His ongoing project Revival! draws from personal and community archives of Black popular culture, dance, and music; religious traditions; and a variety of folk practices. Zakat’s work has been shown in Philadelphia at the BlackStar Film Festival, The Fabric Workshop and Museum, and The Barnes Foundation, among others. He has received an Independence Public Media Foundation Filmmaker Grant, a Velocity Fund grant, and a Pennsylvania Humanities Council grant. He earned a BA in film and media arts from Temple University.
