EUGENE JARECKI - Director, Writer & Producer
Eugene Jarecki is an award-winning filmmaker, public thinker, and author.
His recent film REAGAN, which examines the life and legacy of the 40th
president, received wide critical acclaim after premiering at the Sundance
Film Festival and on HBO for the occasion of Reagan's 100th birthday. In
2010, Jarecki worked alongside Morgan Spurlock and Alex Gibney as director
of a documentary film inspired by the bestselling book FREAKONOMICS. Earlier
that year, he directed Move Your Money, a short online film encouraging
Americans to move their money from "too big to fail" banks to well-rated
community banks and credit unions. The film went viral, becoming an online
sensation with over 7 million hits in just its first three weeks online. To
date, an estimated 4 million Americans have 'moved their money.'
Jarecki's 2006 film, WHY WE FIGHT, winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the
Sundance Film Festival and a Peabody Award, has been broadcast in over forty
countries and released theatrically in over 250 US cities. In 2009, Simon &
Schuster published Jarecki's acclaimed book, The American Way of War: Guided
Missiles, Misguided Men, and a Republic in Peril, which explores how
militarism disfigures America's foreign and defense policies as well as her
broader national priorities.
Jarecki's prior film, THE TRIALS OF HENRY KISSINGER was released in over 130
U.S. cities and won the 2002 Amnesty International Award, was nominated for
an Independent Spirit Award and has been broadcast in over thirty countries.
In 2002, TRIALS was selected to launch BBC's prestigious digital channel
BBC4 and the Sundance Channel's documentary division.
In addition to his work in film, Jarecki is also a thinker on international
affairs, and has appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Charlie Rose,
The Colbert Report, FOX News, CNN, PBS NOW, BBC World, NPR, MTV, The Tavis
Smiley Show, Current TV, Clear Channel, Pacifica Radio, and Sirius Radio as
well as having been featured in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the
Financial Times, the Daily News, the Village Voice, the New Yorker, the New
York Observer, Vanity Fair, GQ, and Newsday.
