Nominated for an International Emmy. The recently concluded trial of the Khmer Rouge Tribunal was the first to ever bring anyone involved in that murderous regime to justice. This story features two men: one who survived horrific torture amid mass murder; the other: the accused mastermind of the notorious S-21 prison, on trial for crimes against humanity. The doc won a Gold Medal at the NY Film and Television Festival.
The story was commissioned by the UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR. They were struck by the number of people seeking refuge in Mexico from "non-traditional"' (ie. non-Latin) nations. We met several Africans on Mexico's southern border. Some were on their way to the U.S., others requested asylum in Mexico. Most were too afraid to appear on camera. This is the story of family from Equatorial Guinea.
One of two award-winning training videos I produced for GE. Translated into several languages, the video was shown to all GE employees worldwide. This one won the New York Festivals World Medal, 2001 Clarion Award, Videographer Award of Excellence, 2001 Telly Award and the Cine Golden Eagle
This is a moving profile of Luba Frederick, who lost her family in Auschwitz but went on to save 55 children at the Bergen Belsen concentration camp. I found the story when a number of the (now-grown) children she saved gathered to celebrate her and stayed at my father's Florida hotel. He told me about her remarkable courage. I was the senior producer of this story, which won a National Emmy.
