Producer of Workshops & Labs
Martine Granby has worked as a documentarian, producer, video journalist, and educator for The New York Times, Kartemquin Films, Kindling Group, City Bureau, Global Girl Media, and BRIC TV. At BRIC TV she co-produced and directed the Emmy-winning #BHeard documentary series, #BHeard Town Halls. Topics covered in these groundbreaking, community-focused events have included mental health as a civil right, the problematic war on drugs, and the rise of the #MeToo movement. Martine has also collaborated with BRIC Arts Media to produce a series on the connections between acts of healing, and survival in the face of institutionalized violence and injustice. Martine worked as an educator with Global Girls Media in Chicago, empowering young women with the tools for visual journalism to tell their own stories, and as a lead reporter in the newsroom of City Bureau. Currently, Martine is in active production on her feature-length documentary The Mask that Grins and Lies, which had its initial incubation through Kartemquin Films’ Diverse Voices in Docs program, currently co-produced by UnionDocs. The film is a meditative documentary feature that uncovers the intergenerational silence shrouding black women’s mental illness. Martine is an alumna of Mount Holyoke College and Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism.
