Karen Schmeer, Documentary Film Editor, Killed in Hit-and-Run Accident
By THE NEW YORK TIMES
Karen Schmeer, a film editor whose work includes “The Fog of War,” died Friday in Manhattan, after she was run down by a car when crossing a street, the police said. She was 39.
A principal collaborator with the director Errol Morris, she edited the Academy Award-winning portrait of Robert McNamara, the former defense secretary, in 2003, and 1997’s “Fast, Cheap and Out of Control.” She also edited the 2005 Sydney Pollack film, “Sketches of Frank Gehry,” and “Sergio,” a documentary directed by Greg Barker, for which Ms. Schmeer won an editing award at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009.
I just found this news item today. It's from January 2010, but I had not read of it until now.
Can anyone recall the circumstances when Karen Schmeer appeared in Columbia. Was it True/False? Or was it a special screening of The Fog of Wat? Or was it another Morris movie. I remember a Q and A following the movie in which she gave a gracious and funny response to a question I asked. But I can't remember exactly what the event was?
Can anybody remember?
