Ginger Gentile is an activist documentary filmmaker dedicated to addressing ignored global issues and shedding light on solutions. With her soon-to-be-released film, ERASING FAMILY, she is exposing the trauma children suffer when a loving parent is erased by the divorce courts, a problem that affects over 22 million families in the US alone. Ginger crowdfunded over $430,000 for the film to be shot in over 12 locations. For her work in reuniting families, Gentile was named an Architect of Change by Maria Shriver and has given talks at SXSW 2019, the Simply Parent Conference and to numerous universities. She splits her time between Argentina, New York and California and is seeking new projects to direct and produce. She is a member of Film Fatales, Alliance for Women Directors, Women in Film (which chose her to be part of the Director Mentorship Program) and Directores Argentinos Cinematográficos.
