GERALDINE PERONI MEMORIAL SERVICE
I received sad news from my friend Claire Best today. Geraldine Peroni, one of New York’s top film editors, died unexpectedly at her home yesterday.
Peroni has long been associated with the films of Robert Altman — she cut The Player, Short Cuts, Pret-a-Porter, Kansas City, Dr. T and the Women, and The Company — but she also contributed her considerable skills to a number of other great independent films by a wide range of directors. She cut Alison Maclean’s Jesus’ Son, Rose Troche’s The Safety of Objects, Tom DiCillo’s Johnny Suede, and Sande Zeig’s The Girl, among others. At the time of her death she was editing Ang Lee’s in-production Brokeback Mountain.
All are welcome at a memorial service that will take place this Friday, August 6, 11:00AM at St. Veronica’s church, 153 Christopher Street between Washington and Greenwich.
