Debra J. Robinson is a filmmaker/videographer who has produced both documentary and narrative projects that center on experiences of black women. Her first documentary I BE DONE BEEN WAS IS examines the experiences of four black women developing careers as comediennes. The project was funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. I BE DONE BEEN WAS IS was broadcast across a broad spectrum of distribution. Since then, she has produced a narrative film and experimental documentary. BRAIDS, TWISTS and LOCS was exhibited as part of an installation at Hammonds House and the Arts Exchange in Atlanta. KISS GRANDMA GOODBYE, about a young girl in a Midwestern African American community resolving the death of her good friend, mentor and grandmother, was distributed on the festival circuit and via non-commercial distribution. Her film HEALERS: HOLISTIC WOMEN OF COLOR is a 30 minute video-documentary exploring the prevention and treatment of diseases based on simultaneously treating the mind, body and spirit. The program was produced for Deep Dish Television in New York. Debra Robinson holds a BA in Psychology from Baldwin Wallace College and a Masters in Media Studies from the New School.
