JEREMIAH ZAGAR

BIOGRAPHY

Born to hippie artists, Jeremiah grew up in South Philly spending most afternoons in a dark movie theater or wandering the aisles of his local TLA video store. Later, on trips home from Emerson College, he started filming his parents, resulting in the documentary, In A Dream, which premiered at the SXSW Film Festival and screened theatrically across the US and in film festivals around the world. It was broadcast on HBO, shortlisted for an Academy Award and received two Emmy nominations, including “Best Documentary.”

His next feature-length documentary Captivated: The Trials of Pamela Smart premiered in competition at the Sundance Film Festival and aired on HBO to much fanfare in 2014. Other notable output includes the pilot episode for Showtime’s 7 Deadly Sins, and commercial work for GE Capital, Pedigree and New Balance. His next project is the feature We The Animals—based on the best-selling novel—which was selected for the Sundance Directing & Screenwriting Lab fellowships. When he’s not working, Jeremiah spends his time swimming in New York City's finest public pools.
