Ivan Weiss is a documentary filmmaker and a professor in Wake Forest University’s Journalism Program. His films and multimedia projects have explored a variety of subjects, including segregation, gentrification, the experience of musical performances and athletic events, and more. Running through all his projects is an engagement with place and landscape, analyzing how we create, change, and make discoveries, and how we connect – or fail to connect – with one another.

As an educator, Weiss seeks to teach students to use the tools of filmmaking and journalism to strip away falsehoods, reveal truth, and see the world with new eyes.
