Judy Katz, Producer
Katz has been working as a producer and writer in documentaries over the past 12 years, most recently as supervising producer at National Geographic Explorer where she helped create the award winning series Explorer Journal, a forum allowing non-filmmakers to tell their own stories on small format video. Prior to that she worked for NOVA at WGBH in Boston and for a number of other PBS series. Judy has had a lifelong interest in oral history and giving voice to those who would otherwise go unheard.

Rudavsky has been producing and photographing documentaries since 1980. His last film, A Life Apart: Hasidism in America, was funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Selected credits include: Spark Among the Ashes, At the Crossroads, Gloria: A Case of Alleged Police Brutality, and Dreams So Real. His films have appeared on WNET, PBS, and ABC, and have been shown at Sundance, Berlin, AFI, San Francisco, Sydney, London, and other prestigious film festivals.
