CHRISTINA BURCHARD



First as a lauded documentary editor, and now as a director, CHRISTINA has developed stories about complicated heroes and mega fraudsters, athletes and artists, dark hearts and inspired minds. Her editing career reached a pinnacle as part of the Academy Award winning team on the Edward Snowden documentary, Citizenfour.

This came after years of cutting films and television docu-series for a host of festival darlings and Emmy award winners.

In 2015, she jumped to directing, helming Spyball for ESPN’s 30 for 30 series. This quickly led to branded assignments for Nike, Bridgestone and Vice and an Emmy nomination for the documentary series Why We Fight. 

She has since developed projects supported by @radical.media, the MacArthur Foundation, Oprah, the Sundance Institute, the Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund, HBO, Showtime, Netflix, PBS, Discovery, the Venice Film Festival, DOC NYC and the Toronto Film Festival, among others.

Recently, Christina completed directing Season Two of the IDA nominated documentary series The Confession Tapes for Netflix, produced by A24, and is prepping Season Two of the docu-series Why We Fight.

Dance is also a passion for Christina and she has begun joining her two creative worlds. Her latest dance film Lorelei, starring principal dancers from the Joffrey Ballet, premiered at the Hollywood Bowl and will be released in late 2019.
