Kirschenbaum Productions

Kirschenbaum Productions An Emmy Award winning production company led by Gayle Kirschenbaum. Kirschenbaum Productions was founded by Gayle Kirschenbaum, an Emmy-winning filmmaker, personality and speaker.

Called “the Nora Ephron of documentaries,” Gayle began by creating and executive producing several “little people” shows for TLC and Discovery Health. She has now turned the camera on herself. Her first film, A Dog's Life: A Dogamentary, premiered on HBO and has been featured widely in the media. It's a wacky, poignant documentary about the positive effects of the bond between dogs and humans, as told through Gayle's story with her Shih Tzu, Chelsea. In her humorous film, My Nose, we follow her mother’s relentless campaign to get her to have a nose job. Gayle is currently in post-production on a feature documentary called Look at Us Now, Mother! where she explores the highly charged mother/daughter relationship through her own story.

Poignant. Love her words

"Do not reach out your hands. Reach out your heart. Reach out your words. Reach out all the tendrils of compassion that move, invisibly, where we cannot touch."

I lived for years filled with anger and resentment - why was I the constant target of my mother’s abuse as I watched her love and adore my brothers. Embarrassed to say, when I was growing up instead of wishing her well, I wished her dead. I believed I would then be free. How wrong I was. The anger consumed me and affected all aspects of my life.

By middle age, I knew that if I wanted to set myself free, I would have to forgive my mother. I just didn’t know how. I finally figured it out. I figured out the steps I would have to take to release myself from the mental bondage I was consumed by and take my power back.

Today my mother is my closest friend and we have traveled the world together. She is 96 years old and I am so grateful I did the work before it was too late so we would have time to spend together.

I know I am lucky that my mother is around. If she wasn’t and I hadn’t done the work, I would still be living filled with rage. “Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”

Due to the obstacles I faced in my life, I learned the steps to finding forgiveness and apply them to others alive or deceased.

Is there anyone in your life you’re struggling to forgive? Perhaps, your mother, a father, a relative, spouse? Maybe that person is long gone.

I have been speaking on and teaching my method to finding forgiveness for the last several years.

Omega Institute, where many great minds and leaders have taught there including Deepak Chopra, Bene Brown, Maya Angelou, Byron Katie, Gloria Steinem and Eve Ensler, has invited me to give a three day workshop on forgiveness.

I’m honored to join this impressive list and be able to offer to my participants an amazing intensive weekend. All participants will have access to the fabulous amenities at Omega including: yoga, meditation, tai chi, tennis, library, wooded trails and gardens plus more.

Omega has advised me that people should register early in order to have the most housing options.
Omega is a popular place where people travel from all over the world to attend workshops.

Here’s the link to learn more and register.

Photography Exhibit by Filmmaker Gayle Kirschenbaum

My first forms of creative expression were drawing and writing when I was quite young. As a teenager I discovered photography and soon found myself at 17 years old 200 miles away from home studying art. I spent hours creating prints in the darkroom. Sometimes under exposing them so I could paint with Marshall oils on the faint image. What resulted were pictures that looked like impressionist paintings. I stopped taking photos, playing in the dark room many years ago as I was driven to tell stories through film. It mixed all I love - visual, movement, words, sound and music. And now as I have been in between films, writing and speaking and coaching, my phone, my Iphone which is always with brought me back to my early passion - photography.
I have been exhibiting in group shows the last couple of years in Europe and NY and now have a solo photo show in NY.

I had spent my career behind the camera making TV. When I emerged as an indie filmmaker after seeing the response to a film I made with my dog, I realized I was at home in front of the camera. I decided it was time to put my personal stories and trauma out to the world. What resulted was LOOK AT US....

My Journey to Forgiveness

I am thrilled to connect with Dr. Robert Enright. He has pioneered the scientific study of forgiveness, which now claims over 1,000 researchers worldwide. He has authored many books, the recipient of several distinguish awards and the founder of The International Forgiveness Institute. He asked me to write a piece for his blog.

I never expected that one day I would be asked to give talks about forgiveness. Forgiveness was the farthest thing from my mind. How could I ever forgive someone who hurt me so much, someone who w…

Women feel pressure all over the world to conform to social standards of beauty, and the effects can be devastating. But what about when that pressure comes from your own mother…? ‘Look at us now, mother’ moves past fighting back, and instead is a story of forgiveness and understanding.

This International Women’s Day, it is important to appreciate our loved ones for who they are.

On The Trail With Gayle - Podcast 11 - Still Texting

Years ago we created a video podcast series called ON THE TRAIL WITH GAYLE. Was just watching the news as they talking about the dangers of pedestrian texting and accidents. It is so easy to get engrossed in a text while walking. Look what happens.

This podcast explores the motives and consequences people experience when they incorporate texting into their daily routines.

Sarah Silverman’s response to a sexist tweet is a much-needed ray of hope

THIS IS A GREAT STORY
THANK YOU, SARAH SILVERMAN

Sarah rises above and realizes this man who slandered her is in pain himself and she turned around the situation. When someone acts unkind to you instead of giving it right back, try being kind and understanding and see what happens. We all want to be heard, understood, acknowledged and loved. It is so easy to become angry and bitter when we don't feel the love and feel alone and isolated. Love is the most powerful emotion and we can transform people by giving them love.

In the brutal, self-centered bash-fest that social media often becomes, a moment of simple kindness and connection stands out.
