Women in Film: Berg, Amy–Deliver Us from Evil

“Deliver Us From Evil” marks Amy Bergs feature directorial debut.

For the past five years, she has produced documentary segments for CNN Investigations and the CBS News program 30 Minutes of Special Assignment. Her work at CBS News earned her Emmy Awards in 2003 and 2004. In 2005, she launched Disarming Films to produce long-form documentaries for theatrical release.

Berg’s reports have delved into a variety of hard-hitting topics, including: sexual assault, women in prison, clergy abuse, battered women, unsafe public playgrounds, poverty, illegal drug dispersion, illicit medical doctors and toxic pollutants. She has also produced stories on important issues relating to parenting, social welfare and innovative science and medical breakthroughs.

Prior to working at CBS, Berg researched and developed stories for Silver Creek Entertainment, a producer of segments for ABC News. Many aired on Good Morning America, 20/20, and Extra. In addition, she has written numerous articles for the National Organization For Women, the Jewish Journal and a number of monthly and weekly periodicals in America and France.

Her track record of tackling tough social issues piqued her interest in the subject matter of DELIVER US FROM EVIL, and she became determined to use her wealth of contacts and resources to bring its story to the screen.

Amy Berg is currently working on a narrative feature entitled THIS IS NOT AMERICA about the decline of the Alaskan culture and the hybrid culture that now exists in the small villages of Alaska.
