Formally trained in educational media, Maureen Kelleher began writing and directing for the educational market before branching out into television and drama. Committed to making inspiring programs, her first documentary, To Return: The John Walkus Story, explores the adoption and fostering of First Nations children. Invited to numerous festivals and broadcast nationally, this documentary was awarded ‘Best Public Service film' at the American Indian Film Festival.
Maureen wrote and directed five episodes of Ghost Towns of Canada for the History Channel, created a pilot for a half-hour series on emotional intelligence, created and developed The Truth Is Out There, an exciting conspiracy series for Global Television, and was associate producer of the one-hour art doc The Lowdown on Lowbrow.
Her drama credits include associate producer and co-writer of Trouble, a feature film for ZDF television about Berlin's turbulent post-wall period that won Best Film at the Magdeburg Film Festival and Montreal Women's Film Festival.
Maureen has just completed her second one-hour documentary, Return To Reichenbach, which weaves the stories of two women: a Holocaust survivor; and the German women she believes was the Nazi guard who protected her in the concentration camp at Reichenbach.
