From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Vanessa Vadim (born 28 September 1968 in Paris, France) is an independent producer and cinematographer.

In the 1990's she co-founded with Brown University classmate Rory Kennedy MayDay media, a non-profit production and distribution group that uses video as the center force in campaigns that fight racism, sexism, classism and homophobia. The company produced a short video called Fire in Our House about needle exchange programs and their ability to prevent the spread of HIV infections.

In 2005 a documentary she co-directed and produced with Celia Carey called Quiltmakers of Gee's Bend was released. This film accompanies a museum exhibition and features the quiltmakers and quilts, historical photography and a musical soundtrack based on the gospel songs of Gee's Bend.
