Tamara Perkins is an award-winning filmmaker and changemaker focused on stories that inspire transformative change through dialogue, healing and advocacy through her company Apple of Discord Productions. Perkins’ films LIFE AFTER LIFE (2018), REBOUND (2021), CLARISSA’S BATTLE were each inspired by a personal connection to the subject matter and provide an often overlooked proximity in storytelling. Her recent feature speculative fiction script melds present day social, moral, and ethical questions with a Woman-driven SciFi Thriller which was awarded the 2022 Stowe Story Fellowship. As a national speaker, Perkins’ repertoire spans filmmaking to prison reform and human rights. A recipient of Evident Change’s Media for a Just Society Award, Perkins’ work provides a catalyst for learning and advocacy for some of our nation’s most misunderstood and overlooked issues.
