Jay’s 4 Questions
A Conversation with
Amy Ziering


This week’s episode of Jay’s 4 Questions hosts Oscar®-nominated, Emmy®-winning, Peabody-winning Documentary Filmmaker Amy Ziering. She speaks about her work in giving voice to the voiceless and her extraordinary films: The Invisible War, The Hunting Ground, and her new film, The Bleeding Edge.

Amy shares her passions for bringing critically important (sometimes hard/uncomfortable) topics to the forefront of society through her films. She discusses the impact of her films on changing society for the better. She gives an inside glimpse as to the series of events that occurred with The Hunting Ground (when CNN came on as a funder, and Lady Gaga and Diane Warren wrote songs and later performed them at the Oscars®). Her dedication to social justice inspires us all. Tune in today to learn more about her contribution to our society and Hollywood.
