BTG Productions was founded in 1993 by Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Bari Pearlman, whose work has been distributed theatrically and on television, and screened at film festivals, museums and cultural institutions around the world.

As a Director, Bari has explored a diversity of subjects unified by the questions and constructs of community - the Jewish women who fanatically play a traditional Chinese game (Mah-Jongg: The Tiles That Bind), Buddhist nuns in remote Tibet (Daughters of Wisdom), the 180 residents of a peculiar Alaskan town (The Strangest Town in Alaska). Following her interest in issues of social justice, she also recently directed two episodes of the forthcoming third season of CNN Death Row Stories.

As a Producer, Bari collaborated with director Alexandra Shiva on the Peabody Award-winning HBO feature documentary How To Dance in Ohio about teenagers and young adults on the autism spectrum preparing to attend a prom. She was a Story Producer/Co-Producer of the acclaimed Amazon Original series The New Yorker Presents. She also produced Lee Storey's award-winning feature documentary Smile 'Til It Hurts: The Up With People Story about that kitschy upbeat singing group.
