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 social issues, she also recently directed two episodes of Death Row Stories and the short film Autism is For Life: The Story of Jeanine Lazili for HBO's Night of Too Many Stars with Jon Stewart.

In addition to her own work, Bari was the Co-Producer of Nancy Schwarzman's feature documentary Roll Red Roll that goes behind the headlines of a notorious high school sexual assault. It premiered at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival. She also recently produced Alexandra Shiva's Peabody Award-winning HBO feature documentary How To Dance in Ohio about 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.
