Director/DP/Editor Julie Mallozzi’s films explore the ways cultural traditions from around the globe intersect, hybridize, and are turned to new social purposes far from their original context. Her films have won awards at festivals around the world and have screened in museums, universities, and on public television.
Mallozzi grew up with a Chinese-American mother and an Italian-American father in rural Ohio – where her family managed a Native American historical site for 20 years. She received her BA from Harvard University and her MFA from San Francisco Art Institute. Mallozzi has taught at Harvard University, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Boston University, and Rhode Island School of Design.
Editor Shondra Burke's credits include main editor of Errol Morris's award-winning documentary Fast, Cheap, and Out of Control and all episodes of his First Person series, which aired on Bravo. In addition to collaborating with Mallozzi on many documentaries and short videos, Burke edited Jocelyn Glatzer's The Flute Player, about a Cambodian musician's life during Cambodia's Khmer Rogue period; I Can’t Breathe, a feature documentary for MTV directed by Pete Favat of Arnold Worlwide; and Tom Curran's Adrift, a personal documentary that aired on PBS.
Burke also works as a commercial editor for clients including Ford, Sony, City Year, Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Boston Globe, Marshall Fields, and Stride Rite. She graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
