First Steps in a Terra Incognita

Working against the grain of traditional documentary, Lynne Sachs ( makes non-fiction films, videos, installations and web projects that push the borders between genres, discourses, radicalized identities, psychic states and nations. Her films expose the limits of verbal language by complementing it with complex emotional and visual imagery. For the last decade, Lynne’s filmmaking has taken her to sites affected by international wars -- where reality is constituted in the space between a community's collective memory and her own subjective perceptions. This body of work includes: Which Way is East: Journals from Vietnam (1994); Investigation of a Flame: a portrait of the Catonsville Nine (2001); A Bosnian-American web collaboration (2002), and States of UnBelonging (2006). With each of these projects, Sachs strategically situates herself in relation to her subjects and challenges conventional hierarchies of historical and political inscription. Her work has been presented at the Museum of Modern Art, the Pacific Film Archive and the Sundance Film Festival as well as museums, and alternative exhibition sites nationally and internationally. Lynne teaches experimental film and video at New York University and lives in Brooklyn, New York with filmmaker Mark Street and their two daughters.

Lynne’ s work is distributed by First Run Icarus (, New Day Films ( and Microcinema (
