Her last four films premiered at Sundance, including her new acclaimed feature documentary, “Connected: An Autoblogography about Love, Death & Technology,” which the New York Times hailed as “Examining Everything From the Big Bang to Twitter,” and The Atlantic called "an intensely personal exploration of what human connection means in our modern technology-obsessed world.” Her previous two award-winning films include "Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness,” about reproductive rights in America, and “The Tribe,” an exploration of American Jewish identity and the Barbie doll. Her films have shown in theaters and on television all over the world. Her team at The Moxie Institute is known for their groundbreaking work combining their films + new technologies + conversational tools + live events to engage people in new ways.
