THOMAS LENNON   /  Writer  -  Producer

Lennon’s work in documentary film has won the field’s most coveted honors: an Academy Award (two nominations), a duPont-Columbia award, two George Foster Peabody and Writers’ Guild awards, and two Emmys (twelve nominations).

He founded, with Ruby Yang, the Chang Ai Media Project; their groundbreaking AIDS messages have been seen over 900 million times on Chinese television and the Internet, probably the largest campaigns in the history of the disease. This work earned them profiles in the Washington Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Los Angeles Times and on PBS. Their film The Blood of Yingzhou District won an Oscar in 2007. They recently completed the last in a trilogy of short films about modern China, The Warriors of Qiugang, which he wrote and produced. He recently directed a series of short films for the Internet commissioned by the Peterson Foundation.
