Erica Jordan

Erica Jordan, an award-winning director, writer and editor of narrative and documentary films that will evoke and inspire, is currently developing her new feature film “Anchor Out.” "Seeing Slavery,” Erica’s 2018 documentary which unravels the unseen worlds of human trafficking, forced labor and prostitution was awarded Best Short Documentary at Los Angeles Independent Film Festival Awards and Around Film Festival (ARFF International) and premiered at Raleigh Studios in August 2018. Erica’s 2017 feature documentary “Painted Nails,” enters the lively world of a Vietnamese nail manicurist. “Painted Nails” aired nationally on PBS and has screened at film festivals around the world. “Walls of Sand,” Erica’s debut feature about an Iranian woman’s search for freedom, received the Best Emerging Filmmaker Award at Rivertown Film Festival, Honorable Mention at Slamdance Film Festival and gained international attention as the first feature film selected to stream over the Internet. Film Threat selected Erica’s second award-winning dramatic feature film, “In the Wake,” as one of the best independent feature films of 2001 — “While anyone who saw ‘Walls of Sand’ could immediately recognize Ms. Jordan’s talent as a filmmaker, her new feature ‘In the Wake’ serves to confirm not only her skill and mastery of independent film production but also heralds her arrival as one of the major artists of the indie scene.”
