Lisa Leeman

Producer/Director/Writer
Loka Pala Films

Lisa Leeman believes that strong narrative and character-driven films can change the world, one story at a time. Over thirty years, her films have illuminated contemporary social issues through intimate character-driven stories that follow people at critical turning points. Leeman is currently making WALK BY ME, a follow-up to her groundbreaking first documentary, METAMORPHOSIS (Sundance Filmmakers Trophy, 1990; POV/PBS), supported by Catapult and Sundance. 

Roger Ebert named Leeman’s ONE LUCKY ELEPHANT as one of the best documentaries of 2011. Other producing & directing credits include AWAKE; CRAZY WISDOM; OUT OF FAITH; and WHO NEEDS SLEEP (with Haskell Wexler).  Lisa has edited award-winning documentaries for the acclaimed filmmakers Stanley Nelson; Renee Tajima-Pena; and Michele Ohayon. Her work has been supported by the Sundance Institute, Catapult Film Fund, the Producers Guild, AFI, NEA, and the California Humanities Council. 

Lisa is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences; Women in Film/LA; Documentary Producers Alliance; Alliance of Women Directors; and WGA West. (She co-chairs the DPA Ethics Task Force).  A former IDA president, Leeman writes articles about the ethics and art and craft of documentary filmmaking.  As a tenured professor at USC's School of Cinematic Arts, she teaches Cinematic Ethics and Documentary Producing. She also teaches workshops for the U.S. State Department’s American Film Showcase.    www.lisaleeman.com
