Folleh Shar Francis Tamba
Folleh was born in Chicago and spent his early life in Liberia, Africa. The experiences of that country’s civil war and subsequent intervention by the United States Marine Corps, inspired him to enlist in 2003. As a filmmaker and interdisciplinary artist, Folleh’s collection of triggered memories, life reactions, interactions, and nightmares are processed, distilled, and morphed into a variety of visual formats. His video piece, We are the Infantry, provides a look at the stark reality of modern combat.
