Laurence Mathieu Léger


I am an award winning independent filmmaker/director/editor, previously a senior video producer at the Guardian US.  I am currently directing a feature length documentary called “Willie“.

I specialize in enterprise, investigative and documentary projects. I’ve done work for major networks and publications such as The Guardian, Reuters, La Presse, TV5, the United Nations, CBS, Al Jazeera and the AFP, among others.

My work has also been featured at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City as part of the the special exhibition ¡Cuba!

I honor quality standards in producing content that is compelling, thought provoking, and visually striking.

In 2017, my work received international recognition after winning a World Press Photo award for my work on the Guardian interactive production The Injustice System – which I spearheaded.

In 2018, I was honored with the prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award in the continuing coverage category for my work on Keystone XL: Driving the US pipeline route.
