Mark Dworkin began his television documentary work in 1976. Currently, along with Melissa Young, he is developing Finding Solutions, a series of television programs that will profile locally adapted, socially and environmentally sustainable alternatives to the dominant global economic model. With an abiding commitment to human rights, social justice, and environmental sustainability, he has produced many documentaries for TV and educational and advocacy use, including four independent specials broadcast around the country on PBS stations.
His early work addressed specific issues: labor issues, U.S. policy in Central America, peacetime conversion of the military economy in the aftermath of the Cold War, life and death for people with AIDS.
Dworkin's more recent films begin to present an emerging critique of the current globalization, as well as possibilities for change: Not for Sale (2002), about the contentious trade issue of patents on life; Another World is Possible (2002), impressions of the World Social Forum; Net Loss (2003), about the impacts of industrial salmon farming in British Columbia, Chile and Washington.
Moving Images's most recent production is Argentina: Hope in Hard Times (2005), which shows the inspiring response of regular people to economic collapse. The film has screened extensively in North and South America, Europe, and Asia.
Mark received his B.A. in Government from Columbia College, his M.A. in Soviet Studies from the University of Wisconsin, and a Ph.D. in Communications University of Washington. His productions have won many awards from CINE, Chicago, Columbus, Houston, International Wildlife, NW Film and Video, Prix Leonardo Festivals.
