Congratulations to Canyon filmmaker Cathy Lee Crane on her upcoming American Originals Now program focus at the National Gallery of Art February 21st-22nd.

Cathy Lee Crane’s award-winning films include an adaptation of a novel by André Breton, an investigation into the German town of Halle through the paintings of Lyonel Feininger, and a mock early sound musical with San Francisco legend Rodney O’Neal Austin as silver-screen siren Louise Brooks. The program also includes  a screening of her film Pasolini’s Last Words, held in commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of the infamous director’s death. Crane is currently associate professor in the department of cinema, photography, and media arts at Ithaca College, specializing in directing actors for film. She is the recipient of a 2013 Guggenheim Fellowship in Film and Video, a 2009 New York Foundation for the Arts Artist Fellowship, as well as numerous grants from the New York State Council on the Arts. Her short films have screened internationally.
