David Borish

PhD, Filmmaker, Photographer

David Borish is a social and health researcher and visual artist pushing the boundaries of using audio-visual methodologies to explore and understand relationships between humans and the environment. His work sits at the interface of documentary film, public health, cultural and social well-being, wildlife conservation, and audio-visual research methods. Through his doctoral work, Borish directed HERD, a research-based documentary film all about a 99% decline of a caribou population and what that means for community well-being in Labrador, Canada. The film has been broadcasted on CBC in Canada and screened at more than 15 international film festivals. David has also worked as an instructor for the Harvard Youth Summit on Climate Change, and as a visual educator for National Geographic Student Expeditions in Iceland and Alaska. Additionally, he has led a variety of visual-based projects about environmental and sustainability in Peru, Nepal, Kenya, and Malaysia.
