Barbara Green

(Berkeley)

Drawing on her professional background as a psychotherapist and consultant on the staff of the Russell House Psychotherapy Institute in Berkeley, Barbara Green uses documentary filmmaking as a means to educate, engage, and empower people to make a difference in their own lives and in the lives of others. Her first feature documentary about a Tibetan exile community in Northern India aired on PBS in 1996. Barbara was co-producer/videographer for a FOFA film project in Oaxaca, Mexico. She filmed master artists in their homes and studios, as well as young artists who were FOFA contest winners. Deeply moved by the dedication and creative spirit of these artists who struggle daily to keep their artistic heritage alive in the face of a shrinking tourist industry and domestic discord, Barbara joined FOFA as a board member in March 2010.
