Annie Berman came of age studying theater in magnet schools for the arts in Miami. She attended Brandeis University for scientific research, but it was a Philosophy of Aesthetics course that fired her synapses. Since then, her camera has taken her around the world exploring image and representation, identity, and religion. Her work has screened at galleries, universities, and festivals. Her recent films UTOPIA 1.0: Post-Neo-Futurist-Capitalism in 3D! (2015), STREET VIEWS (2013) and OF BIRDS AND BOUNDARIES (2011) have screened at festivals, galleries, and universities including UnionDocs, Anthology Film Archive, the Harvard Film Center, and Rooftop. In addition to making work, Annie has also taught workshops in Super-8 filmmaking, nonlinear editing, animation, and worked as a consultant on social media and outreach campaigns including GREGORY CREWDSON: BRIEF ENCOUNTERS, MY PERESTROIKA, and TIBET IN SONG. She is the former President of the board of Women in Film and Video New England, and the founder of Fish in the Hand Productions. Her feature film THE FAITHFUL explores pop-iconography and the relationship between art, expression, and the law. After a decade of obsessively gathering images and souvenirs of Elvis Presley, Pope John Paul II, and Princess Diana, and capturing the annual rituals of their followers, this film is nearly complete. Annie received her MFA at Hunter College, Integrated Media Arts Program.
