    Karen Thorsen, Writer/Producer/Director, James Baldwin: The Price of the Ticket documentary film
  • Award-winning writer / filmmaker Karen Thorsen finds inspiration at the intersection of art and social justice.  Her heroes are game-changers, the artist / activists who shape history – and her films tell their stories without narration, weaving first-person narratives with archival treasures.  ‘Cinéma Vérité Passé.’
  • Thorsen began as a writer.  After graduating from Vassar College, with a year at the Sorbonne in Paris, she was an editor for Simon & Schuster, a journalist for LIFE Magazine, and a foreign correspondent for TIME.  Screenwriting followed, then directing.  [ Thorsen Bio ]
