Bloodletting - Life, Death, Healthcare

The People Who Made It Happen

L o r n a  G r e e n
Writer - Director



Lorna Green's love for filmmaking and story-telling is grounded in her experiences as a youth growing up in the projects of The Bronx. After a year with the Samuel Goldwyn Company in New York, she co-founded a New York-based production company, Young Brothers & Sisters, Inc., with a mission to provide resources for people of color to create their own films.

Leaving her production company to do more independent work, Lorna has written and directed the documentary feature, BLOODLETTING: Life, Death, Healthcare, plus many award-winning narrative shorts, used widely by educators and youth advocates nationally and internationally. With an MFA in Communication and Film, her honors include several Gold and Silver CINDY Awards, the Gold Medal Questar Award, CINE's Golden Eagle, as well as Top 10% Finalist in the prestigious Nicholls Screenwriting Fellowship.

As a middle school teacher, union organizer, and healthcare activist, Moore's venture into film production seemed a natural progression. "As in all my jobs, if you don't have it, or don't have the money to buy it, you figure out how to make it yourself." Living in Los Angeles because "that's the only city where I can do all my jobs at once," Moore claims her roots in Kansas, home of John Brown, and her spiritual home in Oakland, California, where she lived for sixteen years.
