Catherine Licata, Catherine LicataAssistant Professor of Cinema and Media Studies, is one of five recipients of the 2019 Jerome Foundation Minnesota Film, Video and Digital Production Grant which will support her new short film, The Lobby. The grant program supports production and post-production costs of new works in film, video, or digital formats by early career filmmakers in Minnesota. Prof. Licata’s short character-driven drama entwines the issues of economic and class mobility with the contemporary immigrant experience, addressing structural inequalities beyond any one person's control and playing with audience expectations on class and societal roles.
