Producer Kerry David is an award-winning filmmaker that has been working in the film industry for more than 20 years. When she learned of the destruction inflicted on endangered species by the high demand from Asia, she was moved to take action. Breaking Their Silence: Women on the Front Lines of the Poaching War is the manifestation of a lifelong passion.
Kerry David began her career at Paramount Pictures, followed by three years as Executive Assistant to Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman on their various projects before starting her own production company in 2001.
Kerry’s feature film credits are many and include the Agent Cody Banks franchise (Hilary Duff and Frankie Munoz) for MGM; award-winning, Like Dandelion Dust, based on the New York Times best-selling book starring Mira Sorvino and Barry Pepper, for 20th Century Fox. Kerry’s documentary films have garnered critical acclaim, including the award-winning Deposing the Usual Suspects (Benicio del Toro, Gabriel Byrne, Kevin Spacey), award-winning, My Date with Drew (Drew Barrymore); followed by Making Miles: The Miles Davis Story for Oscar-nominated screenwriter Christopher Wilkinson and Seeking Happily Ever After (Lionsgate Films), one of only 25 films accepted into the Sundance Film Lab.
In addition to her award-winning film work, Kerry is a philanthropist through her non-profit, www.OverAndAboveAfrica.com which is how she first learned of the challenges faced by Africa and Asia's endangered species.
She has been a guest speaker and moderator at schools such as University of Southern California, University of California at Los Angeles, Pepperdine University, and the New York Film Academy. She is a voting member of the British Academy of Film and Television (BAFTA).
