WNY Filmmaker Spotlight – Filmmaker Anna Chiaretta Lavatelli

Join us at Fitz Books & Waffles on Saturday, April 22nd at 2:00 pm for a screening and discussion with Buffalo’s own Anna Chiaretta Lavatelli.

Anna Chiaretta Lavatelli is an artist-filmmaker who uses moving images and writing to play with perception, authority, and agency. Through isolated gestures on screen, she undermines power structures implicit in the performance of femininity and image production itself. In her installations and video work, Lavatelli engages the gaze, repetition, and the absurd to unravel the connections between seeing and knowing. Currently she is working with material from personal histories that are intertwined with the making of our end times.

Lavatelli holds a Master of Fine Arts in Visual Arts from the University of California San Diego, and a Bachelor’s degree in Media Study from the University at Buffalo. She teaches video production at the University at Buffalo, produces short documentaries and consults on digital media for museums, artists, and exhibitions. A collaborator by nature, she is a self-identified anarchist with a loud laugh.
