Annie Berman

Annie came of age studying theater in magnet schools for the arts in Miami. She attended Brandeis University for scientific research, but it was a Philosophy of Aesthetics course that fired her synapses. Since then, her camera has taken her around the world exploring image and representation, identity, and religion. Her work has screened at galleries and universities, including the Short and Edgy Film Festival at the Harvard Film Archive. In addition to making work, Annie has also taught workshops in Super-8 filmmaking, nonlinear editing, animation, and social media. She is the former President of the board of Women in Film and Video New England, and the founder of Fish in the Hand Productions. Her feature film THE FAITHFUL: The King, the Pope, the Princess, and me explores pop-iconography and the relationship between art, expression, and the law. After a decade of obsessively gathering images and souvenirs of Elvis Presley, Pope John Paul II, and Princess Diana, and capturing the annual rituals of their followers, Annie is now in post-production and preparing to launch a multi-platform exhibition.
