    Deborah C. Hoard


    Deborah C. Hoard has been a producer and director at PhotoSynthesis Productions for 25 years. With a strong focus on social justice, her work has won more than 100 international and national media awards.


    Deborah was co-producer of They Call it Myanmar: Lifting the Curtain, which the late Roger Ebert called “a thing of beauty… a documentary with all the virtues of a great feature film.”


    CIVIL WARRIORS, her most recent film, explores the experiences of 2 black families from upstate New York whose men enlisted in the U.S. Colored Troops and fought in the Civil War.


    Her recent documentary RE:THINKING asks the question, “What if we taught students HOW to think instead of WHAT to think?” The film shows the powerful, positive change that occurs when teachers and students work together to build knowledge instead of simply memorizing information.
