Katya Yakubov is a Russian-born filmmaker living in Brooklyn, NY. She graduated from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts in 2009 and served as a research and assistant curator for the Video Art and Experimental Film Festival (2012-2013), and continues to contribute as a curator there today. In February 2014, she and partner Daniel Hess opened a micro-cinema in Brooklyn, NY, called The Picture Show, dedicated to screening experimental and fine art films.
Stemming very much from a poem that became the narration of the film, She Learns to Lunge wan an attempt to acknowledge certain mind-states, to materialize and in some sense, exorcise them.
