Cinematographer's Dream

I created Cinematographer's Dream in honor of the first Women Illuminated Film Festival which takes place March 12, 2018 at the Anthology Film Archives in New York, parallel to the United Nation’s 62nd Annual Commision on the Status of Women (CSW).
The one­ day event showcases documentary, short, and feature length films by women filmmakers, grappling with the most pressing issues of our time.

The Women Illuminated Film Festival is particularly timely, as this year’s CSW review theme is “participation in and access of women to the media, and information and communications technologies and their impact on and use as an instrument for the advancement and empowerment of women.”

My painting Cinematographer's Dream is part of a series of  artworks on the history of the movie business and Los Angeles. Set in the early 21st Century, Cinematographer's Dream depicts a world on the cusp of change. Inspired by Oscar nominated cinematographer Rachel Morrison, who shot Mudbound, Fruitvale Station, and Black Panther, as well as the filmmakers featured in the Women Illuminated Film Festival, my painting looks forward to a more inclusive future.
