Lessin’s talk, “Documentary Film and Human Rights,” will take place from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Room 150 of the Communications Building.

An accomplished filmmaker in her own right, Lessin has been part of Moore’s team for almost 10 years, working as supervising producer on Fahrenheit 9/11, winner of the 2003 Cannes Palme D'Or and the highest-grossing documentary film in history, and the Oscar-winning Bowling for Columbine. She was coordinating producer of The Big One, and won two Emmy Award nominations--and one arrest--for her work as senior producer of The Awful Truth. Lessin was also a segment producer on the Emmy Award-winning TV Nation.
