Lynne Sachs

Lynne Sachs intricately layered films, web projects and installations explore the borders between genres, discourses, racialized identities, psychic states and nations. In 2001, Lynne received a Media Arts Fellowship from the Rockefeller Foundation to complete Investigation of a Flame , an experimental documentary about a civil disobedience action in 1968. Her films have been screened at the Museum of Modern Art, the Pacific Film Archive and the Sundance Film Festival. Recently, she created several concept usually inspired installations using time-based media and sculpture. This year she and San Francisco artist Jeanne Finley collaborated on The House of Drafts (, a fiction based web project they created with several Bosnian media artists while living in Sarajevo. Lynne lives in Brooklyn with her partner Mark Street and their daughters Maya and Noa. She currently teaches as a visiting artist in the Film and Media program at Hunter College, City University of New York.
