Catherine Masud is an award-winning filmmaker with extensive experience in producing, directing, and editing, working in both documentary and fictional genres. Much of her filmmaking career was spent in Bangladesh, where she and her late husband and filmmaking partner Tareque Masud engaged in a practice of complete immersion in all aspects of production, distribution, and exhibition of their films, which they called ‘Total Filmmaking.’ Thematically many of her films address economic and social justice issues, war and genocide, and the conflict between religious and cultural identity. She is currently Assistant Professor-in-Residence for Human Rights Documentary Filmmaking at the University of Connecticut.
