Catherine Murphy is a sociologist and documentary filmmaker who has written about and directed films about two of Cuba’s most seminal campaigns: the Literacy Campaign of the 1960s and the conversion to organic agriculture in the 1990s. Catherine received her Masters degree at the University of Havana, writing a thesis that was later published, entitled: “Cultivating Havana: Urban Agriculture and Food Security in the Years of Crisis.” This thesis became the subject of her first film in 1993, "The Greening of Cuba." Cartherine is a consultant at the Institute for Food and Development Policy (Food First). She has lived and worked in Cuba and Venezuela since 1992, and is currently touring the U.S. with her new film, "Maestra," that explains the Cuban Literacy Campaign of 1961 focusing on personal stories of Cuban women literacy workers who traveled across the island to teach, and found themselves deeply transformed in the process.
Murphy was a chemistry professor at DePaul University where he discovered that DDT and PCBs, and many other toxins in the Great Lakes were coming primarily from the atmosphere. Murphy also founded and directed the Environmental Science Program, now housed in an LEED Gold building.
