Gerry Rogers

Gerry Rogers began her film career in 1982 at the National Film Board's Studio D in Montreal. In 1992 she returned to her native Newfoundland and founded Augusta Productions. Among the many films she has produced include the internationally award-winning TO A SAFER PLACE. Her directorial credits include the NFB/CBC co-production AFTER THE MONTREAL MASSACRE, the internationally award winning VIENNA TRIBUNAL, and KATHLEEN SHANNON: ON FILM, FEMINISM, AND OTHER DREAMS.

Gerry's latest film, MY LEFT BREAST, is an intimate and starkly honest portrayal of her struggle with breast cancer, from post mastectomy, through chemotherapy and radiation. Filmed mostly by her partner Peggy and herself, through tears, humour and courage she opens her body, heart and soul to the camera.

Gerry was elected to the Newfoundland and Labrador House of Assembly in 2011. (8/12)
