Social Issue Documentaries, a Specialty

I have been editing feature length documentaries since 1991, specializing in social issue films: independent works with a strong point of view and a desire to change the world. Recently I have also been editing short documentaries for the web and classroom, and I love the immediacy of telling a rich and impactful story in a compressed amount of time. 

Recent films include Yuriko Gamo Romer’s BASEBALL BEHIND BARBED WIRE, THE ‘ILIMA LADY by Kyeng McGuirk and the Emmy™ Award winning REEL WĀHINE OF HAWAI‘I series, co-produced with Hawai‘i Women in Filmmaking.
