Natasha Woods is a filmmaker based in the Midwest. At the forefront of Woods' films lies an interest in the material and sensory qualities that moving image production makes possible. In her work, Woods aims to reclaim space on the screen by investigating microhistories and challenging conventions of storytelling. Her work navigates the tension between the desire for human tenderness and the hopeful expectations of a better world. To underscore these possibilities, she explores themes that build upon landscapes, personal/familial ephemera, and found footage.
In 2018, she received a degree in film and video from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. She is the recipient of the 2020 Mary Nohl award in the emerging artist category. Her films have screened at various moving image festivals including Milwaukee Film, Athens International Film Festival, Milwaukee Underground Film Festival and is currently on tour with a traveling program curated by No Evil Eye Cinema (Ohio.)
