I am Theresia Reinhold, creator and driving force behind Information. What are they looking at? I am an independent documentary filmmaker, with a background in contemporary history and journalism. For the past 6 years I have been, and continuously am, dedicated to working on socially and politically meaningful topics.

In 2012/13 I travelled the USA for 3 months, researching and shooting Dreams & Pieces, a documentary exploring the interconnected relationship between racism and “The American Dream”. To maintain trust and intimacy between myself and my interviewees, I choose to shoot this film alone. Thereby I acted as a camera person, interview partner, writer and director. My goal was to create as much space as possible for natural, honest dialogue on a topic fraught with tension and anxiety.

Additionally, I have created and participated in a number of projects exploring under-addressed topics. One example is the film Underground Dance which portrays the fight of sex workers against governmental discrimination. As director, camera person and editor I was able to both form trusting relationships with the protagonists, and ensure integrity in the portrayal of their activist performance in the final piece.

Sound Designer

Glenn Forsythe is a composer, sound designer, engineer and producer who works in a wide range of post-production services. His original compositions cross every genre border, from electronic music to traditional arrangements that create vivid atmospheres for film, video and multimedia applications. More than just a musician, Glenn has deep knowledge and experience in music technology and A/V systems: non-linear audio and video editing, film/video sound mixing, ADR, sound effect creation and design, to list just a few. Glenn has been a lifelong musician and multi-instrumentalist. At Berkley College of Music, he studied audio engineering and music synthesis, creating much of the foundation of his current work. In addition to the detailed work of virtual instrument creation, Glenn’s original compositions and production work have been the recipient of numerous awards and departmental recognition, including the Music Synthesis department’s Robert Moog award at Berkeley College of Music.
