A Landscape of Memories: The Films of Lee Anne Schmitt
Lee Anne Schmitt's filmmaking falls into two categories, film essay and landscape cinema. Her work has been compared to that of James Benning and Thom Andersen (both of whose work has also screened at Northwest Film Forum).
Schmitt's cinema is at once lyrical, historical and personal. Her features focus on the inevitable trace of man's history on a landscape, dissecting the strains created by the many inequities found within America's political and economic systems. Her shorts offer a more personal exploration of how landscape interacts with personal memory.
Heralded across the globe, Schmitt's film and video work has screened at venues that include the Museum of Modern Art in New York, SF MOMA, The Cinema du Reel at the George Pompidou Center in Paris, Anthology Film Archives in New York and the Pacific Film Archives in San Francisco. We welcome her to Seattle to present this complete retrospective.
