Canyon filmmaker Lynne Sachs. Sight & Sound has ranked her experimental documentary Your Day is My Night among the best films of the year, and the BBC has already declared it to be one of eight films to watch in 2014. Now is a great time to return to the Canyon catalog to explore her unique body of work, which deftly navigates the borders between individual subjectivity and political collectivity, theory and practice, film and poetry. Head over to Fandor to see more than two decades of her short work, then read a new interview with Lynne at Brooklyn Rail, and check out several entries from her ongoing attempt to write a poem for every year of her life on our Tumblr
