Monica Lund’s first experiences with film was the same as most of us: as a viewer, enjoying “moving picture” stories from the comfort of her own home on the family television. In Monica’s case, joining her maternal grandmother in front of the TV to watch black and white films from the 1930s and 1940s was her first introduction to the wonderful world of cinema. The television may have been small, but the stories were huge.
As a young child, Monica wrote plays that traveled overseas — by postage mail, when her mom would send them to her wherever Monica’s father was currently serving. Fast-forward many years: Monica’s day job had become accounting, but much of her free time was spent on “all things film”– something that soon grew to be more than a hobby.
