Meet the director of Woman with an Editing Bench, a biopic about Russian film editor Elizaveta Svilova, unsung creative collaborator on Dziga Vertov’s classic Man with a Movie Camera (1929). Dr. Pearlman is also the author of Cutting Rhythms, Shaping the Film Edit, which derives from her career as a professional dancer with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and articulates her ideas about rhythm in film. She applies her scholarly understanding of kinesthetic empathy to a choreographic sensibility, editing screen dance works made by The Physical TV Company, which she codirects with Richard James Allen.
