In Memory of Nancy Cain

Nancy Cain (June 3, 1941-August 22, 2021)

We miss you already, Nancy!

Nancy Cain died on August 22 in her home in Desert Hot Springs, CA. She was a pioneering videomaker, photographer, author, feminist and role model for generations of artists. Nancy had an unwavering commitment to visionary alternative video for more than five decades, starting with the Videofreex in New York. She was a best friend of Media Burn for all of our 20 years and a major producer of our television series THE 90’s, and countless projects and productions.
