Chrissie Stansfield originally trained as a social worker in London. She began working in film and video in 1983 as a member of the all woman production company, Sheffield Film Co-Op. There she worked on many documentaries in a variety of capacities. She became freelance in 1991. Ten of her documentaries on political and social issues have been televised. Stansfield’s visit to Ann Arbor was arranged to coincide with the screening of her documentary "Bringing It All Back Home." The film analyzes how the patterns of international capital investment and the exploitation of Third World women workers in free trade zones are being brought home to the First World. This film urges women workers in First World countries to learn from the challenges Third World women have made to the concept of development. (09/09)
