Cathy Cook [Brooklyn, NY]

Cook is a film and video maker whose experimental work personalizes the human experience through cinematic language. In past films, her work has challenged gender and sexual stereotypes through social satire. Rhythmic collage is projected both visually and aurally by incorporating poetry, animation, dance, original soundtracks, interviews and live-action. Cook combines documentary and narrative form through experimental style.

Cook studied Inter-Arts and Art at the University of Wisconsin and later graduated with a MFA in Film/Video and Women’s Studies from the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee, in 1986. She has taught film/video production and animation at various schools, including Hunter College, University of Iowa, University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee, and University of Wisconsin - Whitewater. Currently she teaches film production and animation at Sarah Lawrence College.

At present, she is creating “Cook’s Book of Poetry,” a new collection of poetry films, which will premiere at the Bowery Poetry Club (NYC) on January 12th, 2003.
