Carol Bash is an award winning filmmaker with over 25 years of experience in broadcast journalism and independent documentaries. She is the Founder and President of Paradox Films, a media production company based in Peekskill, New York. Most recently, her short film Morning at Hemlock Hill Farm which showcases the natural beauty of a local farm was part of the Putnam Arts Council’s Grass + Roots (October 2021); the Peekskill Arts Alliance Re-emergence (June 2021); and Peekskill Arts Grants Displays of Affection (March 2021).

Currently, in production is: Blueprint For My People, a short film that illuminates the African-American experience by lyrically interweaving spoken-word narration of Margaret Walker’s epic poem, For My People with contemporary images and rare 19th century cyanotypes (blue photographic prints known as “blueprints”); and My Battle with PD, a short film that visually brings to life the poignant words penned by disability activist, John M. Williams about living with Parkinson’s disease.

Her feature documentary, Mary Lou Williams: The Lady Who Swings the Band, on this renowned yet unsung jazz genius, was broadcast nationally on public television in 2015 and screened at international and domestic film festivals, where it garnered multiple awards.
