American artist Lynne Sachs (1961) started making films during her studies in San Francisco, where she collaborated with artists like e.g. Craig Baldwin, Bruce Conner and others. In her work, she uses various forms of film, combinations of elements of essay, collage, performance, documentary and poetry. Her self-reflective films explore links between personal observations and a wider historic perspective.
