Rose Rosenblatt fell in love with film while in graduate school at Columbia University where she was working toward a master's in Art History. She took a detour into filmmaking and never left. During her career, she has worked as a producer, writer and editor, beginning with the Rights and Wrongs, a PBS series chronicling human rights abuses around the world, and Mandela in America, a profile of the South African civil rights leader (PBS).
Marion Lipschutz and Rose Rosenblatt run Incite Pictures and Cine Qua Non, a NYC based company producing feature length documentaries that entertain, educate, and engage audiences across a wide range of platforms. Their work has been called "unique and memorable", "pure gold" and "balanced and truthful".
Their last film, The Education of Shelby Knox, won Best Cinematography at the Sundance Film Festival, as well as a dozen other awards. It launched the 2005 season of PBS’s Point of View, a series that also featured Live Free or Die, the story of a doctor banned from teaching in his children’s schools because he provides abortions. Other work includes Fatherhood USA, a series on contemporary fatherhood; The Abortion Pill; and for a change of pace, The Trenchcoat Gang, a Court TV special about the most successful bank robbers in U.S. history.
