Joe Berlinger(born 1961)

Academy Award and seven-time Emmy nominated and Peabody and Emmy-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger has been a leading voice in nonfiction film and television for two decades. Berlinger's films include the landmark documentaries Broher’s Keeper, the Paradise  Lost Trilogy, which helped lead to the recent release of the wrongfully-convicted West Memphis Three, and Metallica: Some Kind of Monster, a film that re-defined the rockumentary genre. Crude, about oil pollution in the Amazon Rainforest, won 22 human rights, environmental and film festival awards and recently triggered a high profile First Amendment battle with oil-giant Chevron. Five of Berlinger's documentary features, including his Emmy-nominated 2012 documentary Under  African  Skies, have premiered at the Sundance IFF. He has received multiple awards from the Directors Guild of America, the National Board of Review and the Independent Spirit Awards.
