Charlotte Lagarde, born in France, has created
work that has been aired on PBS series POV and Independent Lens, the Sundance
Channel, HBO and Canal+ and has been included in a show at Mass MOCA. Her love
of the ocean has led her to document magnificent women surfers in her
award-winning short films Zeuf and Swell. The feature-length documentary
she directed about the Hawaiian surfing legend Rell Sunn, Heart of the Sea, was broadcast in over 30 countries and won
numerous awards including the 2003 PBS Independent Lens Audience Award and Best
Documentary Award at the Ashland Independent Film Festival. As a 2016 Camargo
Foundation Fellow, Lagarde will be developing an essay film, Zeuf + 20, further exploring her
relationship to the sea.

Her producing credits include Deann Borshay Liem’s In the Matter of Cha Jung Hee (PBS/POV
2010) and Geographies of Kinship (in
progress) and Carrie Lozano’s Academy Award-winning Reporter Zero, which premiered at the 2006 Berlin International
Film Festival. Her latest documentary, The
Ballad of Fred Hersch
, about the legendary jazz pianist and AIDS activist
Fred Hersch, premiered at the 2016 Full Frame Film Festival.

Lagarde currently has a video on view (Jen Bervin’s Silk Poems) in the exhibition Explode Every Day: an Inquiry into the Phenomena of Wonder at MASS
MoCA through April 2017. Bervin and Lagarde are collaborating on an upcoming
project in Suzhou, China, titled Su-Hui’s
Reversible Poem
