Thelma Schoonmaker can be called nothing less than one of American film’s treasures. The award-winning editor has collaborated with Martin Scorsese on all 18 of his films. She has been nominated for seven Oscars in the Film Editing category, and has won three of them for Raging Bull, The Aviator, and The Departed. She has received seven BAFTA award nominations in Film Editing including for their most recent collaboration, The Wolf of Wall Street, and has won for two of them, Raging Bull and Goodfellas. She has also joined Martin Scorsese in her active commitment to film preservation, specifically focusing on the restoration and preservation of the films of her late husband, legendary director Michael Powell. In addition to her appearance at Scarecrow, Ms. Schoonmaker will also be at Seattle Art Museum to present two of these films:
