Documentary filmmaker Lisa Molomot hails from Tucson, Arizona and has been working in film for over 20 years. Her work includes award-winning pieces like The Hill (2013), School’s Out: Lessons from a Forest Kindergarten (2013) and Teaching in Arizona (2018). As a 2019 Fulbright Scholarship recipient, Molomot passionately produces and directs emotionally impactful documentaries, while also commissioning works for nonprofits and arts organizations across North America.
