An award-winning filmmaker with a passion for history and social justice, Roberta Grossman is a member of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences Documentary Branch and of the Writers Guild of America. What sets her films apart are high production values, beautiful cinematic craftsmanship and inspiring protagonists. Grossman’s films tell stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things in the name of justice. According to Grossman, “making a documentary is like pushing Sisyphus’ rock up a steep mountain. The only way to summit is to have a sense of personal responsibility to tell a story that would otherwise remain untold.”
Grossman wrote, produced and directed Who Will Write Our History, a feature documentary about Emanuel Ringelblum and the secret archive of the Warsaw Ghetto, which was executive produced by Nancy Spielberg and released to great acclaim in 2018. Grossman recently completed the film Reckonings, about reparations, for the Claims Conference and the German Finance Ministry. Grossman is also the producer of the recently released Vishniac, about famed photographer Roman Vishniac.+ More... - Less...
