KWALHIA SELECTION : A SIRIUS TRANS/MISSIONS
An unidentified wedding from the past reinterpreted through the lens of today.
Mary Trunk is a filmmaker, choreographer and multi-media artist living in Altadena, CA. Her films take seemingly simple subjects—a family’s unraveling, the choices women make as they navigate identities as mothers and artists, how dancers age— and illuminates how each radiates out to bigger questions: how do we make sense of our histories? What paths are available to us? How do we create meaning within our lives? She has been producing and directing documentaries, dance videos, experimental hybrid films and paintings for more than 30 years. Mary is also a film, video and screen dance Professor at Loyola Marymount University, Mt. St. Mary’s University and Art Center College of Design.
