James Redford has many documentary and feature filmmaking credits to his name. He started his collaboration with Karen Pritzker on HBO’s The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia,  a film that gave hope to millions of families around the world who have struggled to educate their dyslexic children. From there, they turned their story-telling eye on the hidden menace of adverse childhood experiences. Paper Tigers,  currently on the festival and screening circuit, will air on PIVOT TV near the end of 2015. James also co-founded and is current Chair of The Redford Center, a film production non-profit that translates complex environmental challenges into human stories that inspire. Recent honors include the 2014 WildCare Environmental Award, 2015 filmmaker envoy for USC/US State Department’s American Film Showcase as well as serving the leadership circle for the UN’s second annual Media for Social Impact Summit. James lives in Marin County and is married to Kyle Redford, a popular educational blogger for Edweek, Huffpost and Noodle.

Karen Pritzker is an editor, film producer and co-founder of KPJR films. She has executive produced three award-winning documentary films: The Big Picture: Rethinking DyslexiaPaper Tigers; and Resilience: The Biology of Stress and The Science of Hope. Each film has served as a catalyst for social change, sparking global movements that have increased community awareness, created educational initiatives and impacted all levels of policy.

Premiering at The Sundance Film Festival in 2012, The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia uses documentary media to educate global audiences about dyslexia, the number one learning, affecting 20% of the population. Following thousands of screenings, worldwide audiences formed grassroots movements and took immediate action to improve the lives of dyslexic students, their families and their teachers through inclusive educational and policy initiatives.

Similarly, Pritzker’s films Paper Tigers and Resilience: The Biology of Stress and The Science of Hope have served as creative tools used by diverse audiences of educators, health care providers, juvenile justice professionals, non-profit agencies and corporations to share the impact of childhood trauma and toxic stress on the child, the family and our society as a whole. Named as a National Resilience Champion by childhood trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) leaders, Pritzker and her films are reframing beliefs around trauma and stress worldwide.

Pritzker also serves as President of the Seedlings Foundation, where she directs resources toward programs that nourish the physical and mental health of children and families as well as institutions that foster an educated and engaged citizenship. Since it’s founding in 2002, the Foundation has awarded millions of dollars in grants, catalyzing advancements in medical research, social services, job retraining for adults, affordable housing, and online news sites dedicated to local, factual, ad-free reporting.

Pritzker was the editor of My Hero: Extraordinary People and the Heroes Who Inspire Them (Simon & Schuster) and co-editor of Profiles in Dyslexia, which features the untold stories of successful dyslexics from all walks of life. She received her B.A. from Northwestern University and serves on the board of directors of Grameen America, a nonprofit that offers low-cost microloans to women below the poverty line, as well as Grameen PrimaCare, which provides affordable health care for immigrant women.
