Mary Trunk started as a painter, became a dancer and choreographer and has been making films for almost 20 years. She spent seven years filming four mother/artists for her most recently completed documentary Lost In Living (www. maandpafilms.com/lostinliving). She recorded births, female friendship, aging, career success and failure, divorce, parenting mistakes and triumphs, resentful children, dirty dishes and lots and lots of laundry. All centered around the tricky balance of family life and artistic expression. Her newest hybrid documentary project moves on to middle age and the desire to keep dancing in some form or another. Mary teaches film and video at Art Center College of Design and Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA. Find out more at www.maandpafilms.com.
