Chris Ehrmann-Rivera
Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaker & journalist

I am a Puerto Rican cinematographer and director who has traveled all over the world.  

My cinematography strives to be patient, intimate, and beautiful to help tell complex stories about people and difficult subjects. Having worked previously as a journalist, I bring along a strong sense of how to tell a story with integrity, compassion, and respect. 

I hold a master's degree in journalism from the University of California, Berkeley, and over my collegiate and professional career, my work has taken me to India, Namibia, Ghana, and Colombia. Some of the news organizations I have worked with include the Associated Press, Report For America, USA Today, and The GroundTruth Project. 

Some of my achievements include an Emmy nomination in 2019, receiving the Brian Pollack Award for documentary filmmaking in 2022, and the being a part of the inaugural class of the Moment Institute Middle East Fellows program in 2023. 

Bonus fun fact: I have a husky named Tundra and she's traveled all over the country with me!
