Based in San Francisco, Erin Brethauer is an Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and photographer. Her first feature documentary film, Last Men Standing (2016), explored the physical and psychological effects of being a long-term HIV survivor. The film, and a weekly video series she co-directed called The Regulars, were awarded regional Emmy Awards. More recently, she leans toward filmmaking on the personal effects of climate change and life after incarceration. Her short film, Eric and the Bees (Mountainfilm 2021), which she co-directed with Tim Hussin, dives into life after combat and the surprisingly healing power of beekeeping.
