Underexposed Films

Underexposed Films,  a production company headed by Michelle Grace Steinberg in collaboration with Robyn Bykofsky, creates independent documentaries that expose underreported stories with accountability to the communities most impacted by them. We also partner with non-profit and grassroots organizations to craft media that supports their work and catalyzes change. Additionally, we offer workshops using our films to further social justice in health care.  

 

Our filmmaking style is unique in that it prioritizes the people sharing their stories as equal partners in media making, responding to their needs and perspectives throughout the creative process. We specialize in community-driven media that contextualizes the individual's story as part of a larger community that both influences and grows from the remarkable people that comprise it. This approach developed from our work cross-culturally that attempts to recognize and address the inherent power dynamics of both the filmmaking process and larger societal structures.
