Dinorah de Jesús Rodriguez is a Miami-based artist and experimental filmmaker working with expanded cinema, public intervention, installation, and multimedia performance. Often incorporating nature and the outdoors into her work, Rodriguez probes such themes as ancestral bonds, history, ecology, the body, gender, and sexuality.

Combining handcrafted 16mm film with video, installation, and performance, her pieces are exhibited internationally in film festivals, museums, galleries, TV, public outdoor installations, and multimedia performances.

Originally from Cuba, Rodriguez has spent most of her life in various cities within the United States, with periods of extended residence in Latin America and Spain. She currently works in Museum Education at Perez Art Museum of Miami and with the Women on the Rise! program at the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami, and co-founded Flashlight Project, a mentoring and digital arts education program at sites such as the Bass Museum of Art, the Wolfsonian-FIU Museum, Girls’ Club Collection, and others. Rodriguez serves on the Board of Directors for the Miami Beach Film Society and occasionally curates film screenings and moving image exhibitions at the Miami Beach Cinematheque.
