GREETINGS, FRIEND.

I spent most of the glorious month of August 2018 walking the Pacific Crest Trail in Oregon (see image here). I have since been in a process of reflecting on my creative work for the past 15 years, archiving my video work, and overhauling my website. Check back in summer 2019 for my new look. 


BIO: Julie Perini makes experimental and documentary videos and films. Preoccupied with daily life, her short-form personal works are autobiographical, self-reflective, and expressive. Her documentary feature films are produced within and alongside contemporary social movements. She is co-director, with Jodi Darby and Erin Yanke, of the documentary feature film, Arresting Power: Resisting Police Violence in Portland, Oregon (2015) distributed by Collective Eye Films. You might like to treat yourself to a peak at her daily & monthly video project, the Minute Movies. One more cool thing about Julie: she is a backcountry guide with the arts/environmental organization Signal Fire.
