Catherine Gund, the founder and director of Aubin Pictures, is an Emmy-nominated producer, director, writer, and activist. Her media work focuses on strategic and sustainable social transformation, arts and culture, HIV/AIDS and reproductive health, and the environment. Her films - which include Chavela, Dispatches from Cleveland, American Rhapsody (in progress), Born to Fly: Elizabeth Streb vs. Gravity , What’s On Your Plate?, A Touch of Greatness, Motherland Afghanistan, Making Grace, On Hostile Ground, and Hallelujah! - have screened around the world in festivals, theaters, museums, and schools; on PBS, the Discovery Channel, and the Sundance Channel.
Gund’s most recent projects include: Dispatches from Cleveland (CIFF, MSPIFF), a five-chapter documentary that looks at the killing of 12-year-old Tamir Rice by Cleveland police, and shows how people joined together to vote out the prosecutor who didn’t have their backs; Chavela (Berlinale, Hot Docs, Ambulante) a documentary about the life of the iconic Latin-American gender-bending diva, Chavela Vargas; and Born to Fly (SXSW, Full Frame), a documentary that pushes the boundaries between action and art, daring us to join choreographer Elizabeth Streb and her dancers in pursuit of human flight.
She lives in New York City with her four children.
