Gillian Aldrich

Gillian Aldrich is a documentary producer and journalist who has worked on social justice issues in television, radio, and print. She has worked with Michael Moore on several projects, including most recently as a field producer for the academy award winning documentary Bowling for Columbine, on his television series, The Awful Truth, and on his best-selling book, Downsize This, as well as contributing to his documentary, The Big One. In television, she line-produced Trio's The Syringa Tree, a moving one woman show about growing up in South Africa under apartheid, and she worked on the Showtime documentary Brotherhood of Hate, profiling one family's crime and a community steeped in white supremacist ideology. With Skylight Pictures, she co-produced Battle for Broad, a documentary about the Kensington Welfare Rights Union, a renowned group of homeless activists in Philadelphia who have made homelessness an international human rights issue.

From this experience, Gillian became an early member of the media college, a group of media professionals who assist The Poor Peoples' Economic Human Rights Campaign (PPEHRC) and advocate media democracy. In radio, she produced the progressive daily national news show Democracy Now!, and she wrote and produced a one hour documentary for National Public Radio's This American Life, entitled 20th Century Man, involving the search for her late father's true identity in the bizarre twists and turns his life took.
