Guylene Lamour


am on the path to photograph the world and tell my stories.

Strange, sad, and striking stories of traveling the earth, step by step.
My work is about exploration, and the positive and negative realities of culture.

It is about unity, creativity and strength.

I want to make a film about this incredible journey.

Why is it called Path to the Sun?
I realized during my travels that I am truly searching for the path to the sun. To me arriving to the sun means that I become one with it, because being the sun means I can touch every corner of the earth with my presence. Because the Sun brings brings warmth, light, growth, and life.

Who is Guylene Solon?

I am an adventurous Haitian American artist, born in Brooklyn, NY.

I've studied in New York, Fine Arts & Photography at

Pratt Institute & New School's Parsons School of Design and have worked on a number of creative short films, & commercials worldwide.

Now I believe it is time to make a powerful film of my own.
It will also be such an inspiration for female directors. As less than 10% of professional film makers in the industry are women!

I am part of that group of people that want to see life changing movies!

Let's make this film happen!!

To complete this film i need your love, help & support.
Your contribution for the making of Path to the Sun will enable this film to be completed and submitted to SunDance film festival and many others.

As you know making a great film takes time, skill and lots of money.

I am aiming to raise $10,000 with your help for the production and post-production of Path to the Sun.

Your generous donations all go directly to cover equipment, software, editing & transportation
- Post production editing $1500
-HD camera- 18-55mm + lenses & lighting equipment $4000 (Extremely difficult to do rentals for entire film)
-LaCie d2 Quadra Enterprise 1terabyte external hard-drive $300
-Sound & editing copyrights $2000-$2500
-Transportation $900

Currently with over a 100 GB of saved video coverage since 2006 that I will be editing myself and also with an assistant editor for the film and I have over 100 GB to shoot to create a feature documentary film.

When completed "Path to the sun" will be submitted in

Sundance films international documentary category this year!
Your donation will be a motivation for everyone who sees "Path to the Sun" and touch the Sundance festival judges!
 This is my dream. Celebrating what is unique from all nationalities and giving a voice to women artist everywhere inspiring young black female filmmakers to go after their dreams, no matter how poor or how rich.
These experiences have taught me to keep creating from my heart. That's where everything starts from. The first beating of the heart to the last pulse.

I hope that during this learning exploration i've touch the souls of others with my love.

Everything starts with love

We know it, we just lost focus.

I've seen what humanity is missing...INSPIRATION!
Make art! Dance! Sing! LOVE & DO WHAT YOU LOVE!
