Ben Achtenberg was for many years the owner of Fanlight Productions, a nationally-respected distributor of independent documentaries. He recently sold the company in order to focus full time on The Refuge Media Project which is dedicated to producing a wide range of video, print, and web-based resources dealing with the issue of torture. Its first documentary, Refuge: Caring for Survivors of Torture, deals with the healthcare and social service needs of refugee torture survivors living in the United States. Ben received an Academy Award nomination for the documentary Code Gray: Ethical Dilemmas in Nursing, possibly the only nursing film ever so honored. Ben’s other award-winning documentaries have focused on such topics as parenting, homelessness, disabilities, aging, and healthcare ethics.
