Jennifer is a nonfiction filmmaker and visual artist based out of Chicago. Her work uses affective combinations of sound and archives to reflect on the often unrepresentable intersections between things like global warming, capitalism, visual technologies, and American exceptionalism. She is the recipient of major fellowships and awards from the Fulbright-García Robles Foundation and the Social Science Research Council and recently participated in the 2019 Poetics and Politics Symposium, the 2018 University Film and Video Association Fellowship Program, the 2018 Telluride Student Symposium and the 2015 UnionDocs Summer Intensive in New York. She received her MFA (2019) in the Documentary Media program at Northwestern University and has a PhD in History from Indiana University (2015). She is currently an instructor of film studies and the Program Coordinator of the IUPLR/UIC Mellon Fellows Program at the University of Illinois-Chicago.
