Erin Lee Carr
Erin Lee Carr is a New York-based director, producer and writer. Erin’s debut book is set to be published April 2019. It is entitled “All That You Leave Behind” and will be published by Ballantine. It is about her dad, the late but still so great journalist David Carr. Film-wise she is in post-production on a two-part HBO series about the Michelle Carter "murder by texting" scandal as well as for her fourth feature “At The Heart of Gold.” Most recently, Erin directed Drug Short, an episode of Netflix's critically acclaimed series Dirty Money. The film focuses on price gouging and unsustainable business practices by the pharmaceutical company Valeant. The Atlantic wrote of the episode, "In Carr’s hands, what could be a predictable story about corporate overreach becomes a gripping entrée into Wall Street excess, studded with compelling characters." Her hit film Mommy Dead and Dearest had its world premiere at SXSW and Hot Docs Film Festival in 2017 and aired on HBO May 15, 2017. Erin's debut film, Thought Crimes, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and Hot Docs in 2015 and aired on HBO that May. Variety named Erin one of 10 "documentarians to watch" in 2015. Neil Genzlinger of the The New York Times called Thought Crimes "absorbing" and a "primer for the century ahead." Before working with HBO, Erin hailed from the video team at VICE's Motherboard, where her produced content has amassed over 25 million views. She enjoys lifting weights and petting dogs.Read more Read less
