Jennifer Rolle Biography
Growing up in the Bronx, Jennifer Rolle enjoyed a steady diet of classic film served up by her movie-loving mom. After spending several years in the insurance, real estate and advertising industries, she began her film-making career in earnest. Her first film was a short entitled, “Two Paychecks Away”, produced and directed in association with the feminist media arts association, Women Make Movies. “A Conversation with Greg” followed.
Jennifer’s current project, a feature-length documentary entitled, “The Black Suffragist: Trailblazers of Social Justice”, explores the challenges encountered by African-Americans as they pursued the right to vote. Ms. Rolle’s production company, Cat Island Cinema LLC, is producing the documentary in association with the Women’s Voices Now organization.
A graduate of New York University, Jennifer resides in Montclair with her daughter, Tiana, and two fur babies. Her other interests include music session photography and web development.
