Jo Andres has died at the age of 65.
Andres gained recognition in the New York City performance scene of the 1980s, using film projections as a backdrop for dance performances.
She then began directing, finding critical acclaim for her 1996 film Black Kite, which aired on US television channel PBS and played at Sundance, Berlin, Toronto and London film festivals.
Andres and Buscemi married in 1987. They welcomed one child together, son Lucian, in 1990.
In a 2009 interview with The Independent, Buscemi said his favorite work of art is “something by my wife Jo Andres. She paints, she makes films, she has done performance.”
