Artist Katy Grannan has been chosen as part of Filmmaker Magazine’s “25 New Faces of Independent Film 2016” for her first feature-length documentary, The Nine. Grannan discusses her first experiences of Modesto, the relationships she has made with its residents, and her interest in the moving image.

“Photos can do one thing,” she says, “but they can’t embody a person’s energy and their conversation and all their idiosyncratic details. So, when I met the community down on the Nine, I was ready for a new challenge; I really needed to be a beginner again.”  —Katy Grannan
