The Children of Chabannes, which aired on HBO Signature and local PBS Stations has been praised as “One of the most heartening Holocaust films ever made–splendid, informative and emotionally involving,” (Los Angeles Times) My So-Called Enemy, which aired on the WORLD Channel in the ITVS-curated “Global Voices” series, has been cited as “A provocative, balanced film that offers unexpected hope for resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.” (Washington City Paper) Lisa became a documentarian because she believes in the power of film to effect social change.
