Zach Ingrasci

The co-founder of the nonprofit production company Optimist, Zach Ingrasci and his partner Chris Temple have managed to raise over $90 million in support of causes championed by their films. After their feature directorial debut Living on One Dollar (2013) and their second film Salam Neighbor (2015), Ingrasci and Temple were recipients of the 2019 Mountainfilm Commitment Grant, helping to support the production of Five Years North (Mountainfilm 2020), a coming-of-age journey of two undocumented boys desperate to bring the American dream back home to Guatemala.
