Irit Reinheimer lives in Philadelphia. Her journey as an artist began in fine arts with sculptural installations exploring the relationship between women and work. She continued on to documentary and experimental film focusing on ideas of identity and loss, both inherited and acquired. Irit uses her late father’s 8mm home movie footage and reassigns locations and people in order to retell history and explore new stories. These archival reels become the raw material for her films and are layered beneath new footage, animation, text, and sound.
