Meredith Lackey (MA '15) is the recipient of the Princess Grace Foundation Film Honoraria for 2014.
Meredith Lackey is an experimental filmmaker interested in the sensible elements of global networks. Through semiotic and sonic montage, her films tease apart the literal image to create experiential encounters with the postmodern sublime. She earned her B.A. from Hampshire College, and is currently an M.F.A. candidate at the University of Illinois Chicago.
