LEE ANNE SCHMITT

 
 

A writer and director of essay films and performances, work that exists in the juncture between fiction and documentary. Much of her work involves 16mm filmmaking placed in landscape, objects and the traces of political systems left upon them. Her projects have addressed American exceptionalism, the logic of utility and labor, gestures of kindness and refusal, racial violence, cowboyism, trauma and narrative and the efficacy of solitude. She is a Film Directing Program Faculty member at the California Institute of the Arts, Los Angeles.
