About the event
Arielle's next conversation was with Colette Ghunim a Chicago, Il based visionary who's passion lies at the cross section of social impact and visual storytelling. Her first documentary, The People's Girls, received worldwide attention for its bold spotlight on Egypt's issue of sexual harassment. She is currently working on Traces of Home, her first feature-length film documenting her journey back to Mexico and Palestine to locate her parents' original homes, which they were forced to leave decades ago. She is also the co-founder of Mezcla Media Collective, a nonprofit organization to support 400 women of color in film in Chicago.
Arielle is an award-winning documentary producer/director. She received a BFA from NYU’s Experimental Theatre Wing and studied directing and taught at Second City Theatre Chicago. She founded Legacy Connections Films in 2005 where she has directed and produced over 100 personal documentaries for clients. Arielle was included in The Independent Magazine's "10 to Watch in 2018" list.
