Mitzi Goldman

Mitzi Goldman has been working in the film industry for 20 years. Mitzi produced and directed the documentary film Hatred (1996) that was nominated for two AFI's and won the ATOM award for Best Social Issues Documentary in 1997. Her documentaries have all dealt with issues of personal history and cultural heritage.

In adapting the stage play Chinese Take Away, Mitzi has explored cinematic language in a more dramatic way than in previous work, without sacrificing either its documentary or theatrical roots.

Mitzi holds a BA, Majoring in Fine Arts/Philosophy from the University of Sydney and a PhD in Cultural studies from the University of Western Sydney.
