Margo Guernsey founded Time Travel Productions LLC in 2012 to produce documentary films and related media. Margo's feature directorial debut, Councilwoman, is touring the country and will air on the WORLD Channel’s America ReFramed in fall 2019. The film’s funders include ITVS, Latino Public Broadcasting, Chicken & Egg Pictures, LEF Moving Image Fund, the Women Donors Network, Surdna Foundation, RI Council on the Humanities and many generous individuals. Her current project is tentatively titled, The Philadelphia Eleven. It tells the story of the Episcopal Women who were ordained as priests in 1974, against the rules of the church, and found themselves at the center of a media firestorm about who speaks the word of God.
 
Over the past 20 years, Margo has worked as a union organizer, non-profit development director, Spanish/English translator and media instructor, always building multi-racial collaborations across class lines to inform the work of building a more just society. Margo works with teams that reflect the subjects in the film as a cornerstone of her artistic process. She is passionate about distributing documentary film in new ways, to empower people, and build movements. Margo is currently putting together new workshops on reaching audience and making your first film. She is also available to speak about the making of Councilwomanand to consult with organizations who want to use storytelling as part of a communications strategy. Contact her directly to discuss your media needs.
 
Margo began her film career in 2010 as a producer at WPBT2 (Miami), and produced and directed industrial videos in the Boston area for McElroy Films LLC for seven years. She has an MFA in Film (University of Miami), MA in History (Umass/Amherst), BA in History (Brown University), and she is a Tribeca/Camden/CNNFilms Retreat Alumni. She speaks both Spanish and English, and is a proud Mama of two young children.
