    Professional Biography

    Jeremy Moss is a moving image artist working in both 16mm and digital video. His projects explore and interrogate bodies, identities, and places shaped by rigid boundaries and porous peripheries. Trained in narrative filmmaking, his work has grown increasingly personal, lyrical, and structural with a heightened interest in formal interrogations of dance, landscape, and the essay. Recent and past films, including The Blue Record (2013), That Dizzying Crest (2013), The Sight (2012), Chroma (2012), Those Inescapable Slivers of Celluloid (2011), Gods of Light, Idols of Mud (2007), and Muzzle (2006), have exhibited widely at festivals and venues throughout the globe, including Edinburgh International, Chicago Underground, Brooklyn, Crossroads, Cinequest, Athens, Maryland, and Anthology Film Archive in New York.
