BIO EXCERPT

In 1914, a year in which she helmed 27 movies, Weber co-directed William Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice (1914) with Smalley, who also played Shylock, making her the first woman to direct a feature-length film in the US.

(Jeanie Macpherson, who would play a major role in cinema as Cecil B. DeMille's favorite screenwriter, also acted in the film).

In the spirit of her evangelism, she began directing, writing and then producing films of social import, dealing with such themes as abortion, alcoholism, birth control, drug addiction and prostitution.

By 1916 she had established herself as the top director at Universal Film Manufacturing (now Universal Studios), the top studio in America at the time, making her the highest-paid director in the world. The following year she formed Lois Weber Productions.

THE MANHATTAN FRONT

Cathy Lee Crane has been making narrative/documentary hybrid films on 16mm since 1994. She received the Guggenheim Fellowship in 2013 for her lyrical re-combinations of archival and staged material.

Her first feature Pasolini's Last Words (2012) was supported through grants from the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Film. The film enjoyed its world premiere at the Montreal Festival du Nouveau Cinema as a "gem of world cinema" in the Panorama International section. The film was released on DVD by Salzgeber in late 2014.

Her award-winning short films have been broadcast on European television and are distributed by Canyon Cinema and Lightcone. In addition to her short work in 16mm, she produced the experimental biography Unoccupied Zone: The Impossible Life of Simone Weil (2006) that was funded by an Individual Media Artist Grant from the San Francisco Film Commission in 2001 and is distributed in North America by Films Media Group.

She has collaborated as projection designer and cinematographer for Joanna Haigood, Harun Farocki, and Strom/Carlson and was commissioned by Aurora Picture Show in Houston to premiere her own installation work for the gallery in 2015. Crane received the first North American survey of her work at LA Filmforum in March 2011 while an Artist-in-Residence in the Directing Program at California Institute of the Arts.

She was also invited to screen her complete works at the National Gallery of Art in 2015 as part of the American Originals Now series. She is currently Associate Professor in the Department of Cinema, Photography and Media Arts at Ithaca College.
