Meg’s documentary subjects read like a “who’s who” of the underworld: Somali pirates, BDSM porn stars, crystal meth kingpins, underground fighters in Cuba, and high-end call girls. She likes to explore controversial issues from an unorthodox viewpoint. Her documentaries have won numerous awards including Best Short Documentary at SXSW and the Student Acadamy Award for Documentary as well as multiple other awards for Best Documentary.
Meg received an MFA in Documentary Film from Stanford University, a Graduate Certificate from Stanford Graduate School of Business, and a BA with honors in Political, Legal, and Economic Analysis (PLEA) from Mills College.
She is a published scholar and has conducted field research in Somalia, The Balkans, and North Africa. Meg has presented her fieldwork in Washington D.C. and was also a guest lecturer at Columbia University. She has traveled to over 40 countries and worked in the Middle East for over half a decade. Her extensive international fieldwork combined with her strong academic background and business knowledge makes Meg one of the most formidable documentarians of today.
Meg recently became the president of Doc Farm Films, a nonprofit that seeks to fund and produce documentaries about controversial topics and viewpoints that are ignored by mainstream media.
Doc Farm Films first project was the documentary, Boxeadora. For more information visit http://www.boxeadorathemovie.com/.
