David Redmon’s interest is nonfiction documentary storytelling. With his partner, Ashley Sabin, he has produced, directed, edited, and photographed four films: Mardi Gras: Made in China (2005), Kamp Katrina (2007), Intimidad (2008), and Invisible Girlfriend (2009). Together, they started the distribution branch of their production company, Carnivalesque Films. Redmon and Sabin’s current project, an ethnographic nonfiction film titled Noah’s Arc, follows Russian and US modeling scouts scouring Siberian landscapes in search of teenage girls to become models in foreign countries. Mardi Gras: Made in China was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. Kamp Katrina and Intimidad both premiered at Museum of Modern Art and the South by Southwest Film Conference and Festival, and all of Redmon and Sabin’s films have screened on domestic and international television stations. Redmon received his PhD in sociology from the University at Albany, State University of New York, and is currently completing an ethnographic book on carnival culture and visual sociology for Routledge.
