Catherine Gund to Deliver CIA Commencement Address

On May 15, the Cleveland Institute of Art will celebrate the Commencement of its Class of 2010 in the John Hay High School Auditorium with a special address by documentary filmmaker Catherine Gund. Gund, the founder of Aubin Pictures, is an Emmy Award-nominated producer, director, writer, and organizer.

As a filmmaker who has worked in all aspects of production for 20 years, Gund’s interest is in telling stories and finding the details that educate and inspire. Her media work focuses on arts and culture, HIV/AIDS and reproductive health, and other social justice issues. Her films have screened around the world in festivals and theaters, on PBS, Discovery’s Planet Green and the Sundance Channel, at community-based organizations, universities, and museums.

Her most recent project, What’s On Your Plate?, is a witty and provocative documentary about kids and food politics which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and is currently in distribution to schools across the country.

She is the granddaughter of former CIA Board Chairman George Gund II, and she was the first third-generation trustee of The George Gund Foundation, where she continues to serve. She co-founded the Third Wave Foundation, which targets grants and programs to young women between the ages of 15 and 30. She is a past board member of The Sister Fund and The Astraea Foundation.
