Emily Lacy is a folksinger and filmmaker interested in provoking hope through a commitment to peace. Based in Los Angeles she has enjoyed exhibitions in painting, cinema, and song, widely over the last several years. Her work spans from film and video making, to painting, to critical essays, to folk music. To a great degree she is interested in how machines and technology influence our idea of cultural "knowledge", and how we can disrupt or deviate from these modes when aware of their various anatomies. She attended the USC Film School for her Undergraduate degree, where she met several of her musical and cinematic co-conspirators. She attended CalArts for Graduate School and met more wonderful people that she is lucky enough to know and be inspired by. The world is full of magical creatures.
