Anne Aghion est cinéaste.
Multiple award-winning filmmaker Anne Aghion has been praised as a documentarian who succeeds in conveying a strong sense of the people and places she covers. After a decade at The New York Times, and the International Herald Tribune in Paris, she started making films. She just completed MY NEIGHBOR MY KILLER, a feature-length film on the Gacaca (Ga-CHA-cha) in Rwanda, which she has been filming over the course of nine years. Her other films on Rwanda, GACACA, LIVING TOGETHER AGAIN IN RWANDA? (2003 Unesco Fellini Prize) and 2005 Emmy-winner IN RWANDA WE SAY? THE FAMILY THAT DOES NOT SPEAK DIES have aired on ARTE, on Sundance Channel and on television networks around the world. She also just completed THE NOTEBOOKS OF MEMORY, the third film in the Gacaca Trilogy. Aghion's previous film, ICE PEOPLE, a feature-length documentary that explores the physical, emotional and spiritual adventure of living and conducting science in Antarctica, premiered at the San Francisco International Film Festival, aired on ARTE in France last Fall, and is being released in New York and across the United States, as well as airing on the Sundance Channel this Spring. Aghion shares her time between New York and Paris. She holds a degree in Arab Language and Literature from Barnard College at Columbia University in New York and is the recipient of a 2005 Guggenheim Fellowship.
