She uses film to reflect on personal experiences of war. Lynne Sachs is brought to Carleton through the International Film Forum. Her documentary "Tip of My Tongue" will be introduced by herself and Cecilia Cornejo. This documentary was created through Sachs bringing 12 New Yorkers, born in different places but around the same time, into conversation about the events that shaped their lives. Her film explores some of the most formative events of the second half of the 1900s, seen through personal stories and conversation.
