A grant was awarded to NATALIA ALMADA for a documentary entitled El General. Dictator, iron-man, nun-burner, father of modern Mexico, Natalia Almada's great-grandfather, Plutarco Elias Calles was the president of Mexico from 1924 to 1928. El General is a feature-length film about the conflicting history Almada inherited as the great-granddaughter of one of Mexico's most controversial figures and the socio-economic injustice that has prevailed from the Revolution of 1910 to the present. El General is a journey into the past of Almada's family and an intimate portrait of Mexico then and now.

Jo Andres received support for That's It (TO JE TO), an experimental film based on the 1992 journals and drawings of Bosnian visual artist Izeta Gradevic. Gradevic, along with her husband and friends from the Obala Art Centar, was forced to take shelter in the basement theater of the Drama Academy to survive the siege of her hometown, Sarajevo. The film will focus on the woman's interior landscape-her hopes, fears, dreams-interwoven with daily acts of existence. Dreamlike, spectral and mysterious, Andres' work has a distinctive, nonlinear shape that appeals both to the conscious and the subconscious.

THE PLAYWRIGHTS' CENTER, Minneapolis, Minnesota, is in the midst of a capital campaign to renovate its building, including a 120-seat theater, lobby area, rehearsal hall, playwright work areas and improved office space. The Jerome Foundation does not make grants to capital campaigns, but it has developed an interest in projects that provide opportunities for individual artists to create and install their works as part of the renovation, construction and enhancement of a nonprofit arts facility. The Playwrights' Center identified three areas within the capital campaign for artists' projects: an exterior sign and rail, a lobby mural and the entrance tower. FORECAST will manage the application and selection process. Jerome Foundation made a commitment of $35,000 to the Center for one or more projects.
