Barbara Ettinger, Director
Barbara Ettinger lives in Germantown, NY, 10 miles outside of Hudson. Her first feature documentary, Martha and Ethel, told the heartfelt story of two women and their childhood nannies. It competed at the 1994 Sundance Film Festival, screened at the Toronto Film Festival and won Best Documentary at the Hamptons International Film Festival. Martha and Ethel was purchased by Sony Pictures Classics for national and international theatrical release, and was shown nationally on Cinemax. Ettinger received a BA at Manhattanville College, completed the certificate program at the International Center for Photography, where she studied documentary and portrait photography, and was awarded a MA from Stanford University in education. After co-founding the Native American Preparatory School in New Mexico, she returned to her home in upstate New York.
