Leah Galant (Director)
Leah was named Variety magazine’s ‘110 Students to Watch in Film and Media’ while a student at Ithaca College for her work on The Provider and Beyond the Wall. Beyond the Wall follows the life of Raymond Roe as he re-entered society after 20 years behind bars and challenges the stigma of formerly incarcerated individuals. Beyond the Wall screened at festivals around the country and aired on PBS. Leah’s interest for telling individual stories to highlight larger issues influenced her work on The Provider which she co-directed with Maya. Leah was recently named a 2017 Sundance Ignite Fellow which offers an intensive year-long mentorship program for emerging filmmakers. As part of Adobe’s Project 1324 ‘What’s Next?’ film challenge, she created a personal documentary titled, Putting the Fire Out, which challenges the media narrative of fear.
